Claudette Colvin (She Persisted)

Inspired by the #1 New York Times best-seller SHE PERSISTED by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger comes a chapter book series about women who stood up, spoke up and rose up against the odds!
Before Rosa Parks famously refused to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, fifteen-year-old Claudette Colvin made the same choice. She insisted on standing up--or in her case, sitting down--for what was right, and in doing so, fought for equality, fairness, and justice.
In this chapter book biography by award-winning author Lesa Cline-Ransome, readers learn about the amazing life of Claudette Colvin--and how she persisted. Complete with an introduction from Chelsea Clinton!
Praise for She Persisted: CLAUDETTE COLVIN:

"Cline-Ransome's narrative provides a knowledgeable, interesting introduction to an important player in the civil rights movement." --School Library Journal
