Praise

“Few will be unmoved by the tactics employed by whites to disrupt the subsequent boycott; at the center, always, is Parks’s dignified, calm recounting of outrages against her and other women and men, giving her words weight and impact as no raw fury could.”–Kirkus Reviews 

“The simplicity and candor of this courageous woman’s voice make these compelling events even more moving and dramatic. Some readers will be stunned by Parks’s firsthand accounts of violence against blacks; all will be deeply impressed by her boundless energy and courage.”–Publisher’s Weekly

“In this recounting of her life, she corrects some media-created distortions of events. Her references to so many people may overwhelm some readers at times, but this does not diminish the overall impact of a wonderful, warm autobiography.”–School Library Journal
