7. Rosa Parks [2000]

Book
246 p. ; 20 cm.
Rosa Parks has been called the mother of the civil rights movement. Parks was a seamstress in Montgomery, Alabama, when, in 1955, she refused to give up her seat on a city bus to a white passenger. She was arrested and convicted of violating a local ordinance, but her act of defiance sparked a citywide boycott of the bus system by blacks that lasted more than a year. This single act of defiance was the catalyst for Martin Luther King, Jr., then an unknown clergyman, to rise into the national spotlight. Ultimately, the U.S. Supreme Court outlawed segregation on city buses. In "Rosa Parks", Douglas Brinkley's talent as an award-winning historian shines as he brilliantly examines an American heroine in the context of this tumultuous time in US history.

xi, 122 p. : ill., ports. ; 21 cm.
On May 17, 1968, at the height of the Vietnam War, nine men and women entered a Selective Service office outside Baltimore. They removed military draft records, took them outside, and set them afire with napalm.The Catholic activists involved in this protest against the war included Daniel and Philip Berrigan; all were found guilt of destroying government property and sentenced to three years in jail. Dan Berrigan fled, and later turned himself in.The Berrigans and their colleagues went on to lives spent struggling against war, poverty, and injustice. And The Trial of the Catonsville Nine became a powerful expression of the conflicts between conscience and conduct, power and justice, law and morality. Drawing on court transcripts, Berrigan wrote a dramatic account of the trial and the issues it so vividly embodied. The result is a landmark work of art that been performed frequently over the past thirty-five years, both as a piece of theater and as a motion picture.This new edition includes Berrigan's original introduction, and additional materials by Robin Anderson and James Marsh that bring its ideas and themes up to date in the context of the war in Iraq.
