This book is about Claudette Colvin
In "Claudette Colvin Refuses to Move: Courageous Kid of the Civil Rights Movement," young readers are transported to Montgomery, Alabama, on a pivotal day in March 1955. Here, 15-year-old Claudette Colvin makes a stand that echoes through history. Unlike the more commonly known Rosa Parks, Claudette is a young schoolgirl who bravely defies the racial segregation laws by refusing to give up her seat on a bus to a white passenger. This act of defiance leads to her arrest, setting in motion a series of events that fuel the Civil Rights Movement. Through Claudette's story, elementary school students will explore themes of courage, injustice, and the fight for racial equality. Published on August 1, 2020, this book not only sheds light on her critical role but also inspires critical thinking and reflection on how one young person’s actions can contribute to societal change. This narrative, rich with historical significance, is a compelling introduction to the struggles and triumphs of the Civil Rights Movement.
