La 4e de couverture indique : "Je repensais à ces nuits d'angoisse pendant lesquelles mon grand-père veillait, le fusil à la main, redoutant le Klan. Les gens ont repété à l'envi que je n'ai pas cédé ma place ce jour-là parce que j'étais fatiguée, mais ce n'est pas vrai. Je n'étais pas particulièrement fatiguée, pas plus qu'un autre jour, après une journée de travail. Je n'étais pas si vieille, bien qu'on m'imagine toujours comme une petite grand-mère. J'avais 42 ans. S'il y avait bien une chose qui me fatiguait, c'était de courber l'échine."

Quiet strength : the faith, the hope, and the heart of a woman who changed a nation by Rosa Parks( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in English and Japanese and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. She was not trying to start a movement. She was simply tired of social injustice and did not think a woman should be forced to stand so that a man could sit down. Yet her simple act of courage set in motion a chain of events that changed forever the landscape of American race relations. Now, forty years after her quiet defiance inspired the modern civil rights movement, Mrs. Parks speaks to us all about her life, her passion for freedom and equality, and her strong faith. Quiet Strength celebrates the principles and convictions that have guided Mrs. Parks through a remarkable life. It is a printed record of her legacy - her lasting message to a world still struggling to live in harmony
