Riassunto: The prizewinning educator's brilliant meditation on the misleading way generations of children have been taught the story of Rosa Parks.
One day Rosa was tired. She sat in the front. The bus driver told her to move. She did not. He called the police. Rosa was put in jail.—from an American elementary school textbook
When National Book Award winner and bestselling author Herbert Kohl first published a reflection on how the story of Rosa Parks and the Montgomery bus boycott is distorted when taught to children, Vivian Paley wrote, "Kohl urges us to look beneath our smug certainties and come closer and closer to the truth."
Now, in celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of that famous moment in the history of the civil rights movement, Kohl has expanded and updated his original discussion. Beginning with a new introduction by Marian Wright Edelman, She Would Not Be Moved also includes a contribution by Cynthia Brown on Septima Clark, Virginia Durr, and Rosa Parks.
The book also includes a teacher's guide explaining how to evaluate textbooks written for young people, an extensive resource guide to educational materials about Rosa Parks and the civil rights movement, and a dozen black-and-white photographs.
L'autore: Herbert Kohl is the author of more than forty books, including the bestselling classic 36 Children. A recipient of the National Book Award and the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award, he was founder and first director of the Teachers and Writers Collaborative in New York. He lives in San Francisco.
