About the book in standard language
This book tells the story of Rosa Parks (1913-2005) in plain language. Rosa Parks, a role model for courageous, passive resistance to injustice, refused to give up her seat on the bus for a white passenger in 1955. She thus triggered the Montgomery/Alabama bus boycott and became a heroine of the African American civil rights movement. Rosa Parks’ story is still relevant today: the fight for civil rights is also a fight for human rights.
This very reader-friendly book in easy language is suitable for anyone who has difficulty reading for various reasons.

The book also offers an audio version so that the story of Rosa Parks can be accessed by reading, listening, combined reading/listening, or read aloud by a third person. The audiobook is available for streaming via a password; the password is in the book.
