The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks

Event date and time

Tuesday, January 21, 2014 - 12:00pm


The definitive political biography of Rosa Parks examines her six decades of activism, challenging perceptions of her as an accidental actor in the civil rights movement. Presenting a corrective to the popular notion of Rosa Parks as the quiet seamstress who, with a single act, birthed the modern civil rights movement, Dr. Jeanne Theoharis, Professor of Political Science at Brooklyn College, and Ericka Huggins, activist, political prisoner, and leader in the Black Panther Party, provide a window into Parks’s politics and years of activism.
