Claudette Colvin, a 15-year old African American student in the mid-1950s, helped change a nation. Her refusal to give up her seat was the precursor to the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Colvin’s words are interspersed with a lucid narrative and additional primary sources in this remarkable look at a person and the period in which she lived.
