|Description:||The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks Jeanne Theoharis and Ericka Huggins In conversation with Robin D. G. Kelley, Gary B. Nash Professor of American History, University of California at Los Angeles This first sweeping history of Parks’ life challenges perceptions of her as an accidental actor in the civil rights movement. Theoharis offers a compelling portrait of the working class activist who stared poverty and discrimination squarely in the face and never stopped rebelling against them in both the segregated South and North. Ericka Huggins—former political prisoner, human rights activist, poet and teacher-- who met Parks during her days of Black Panther activism-- joins the discussion. FREE/ RESERVATIONS RECOMMENDED|
