Claudette Colvin Refuses to Move

Courageous Kid of the Civil Rights Movement

It's March 2, 1955, and an ordinary 15-year-old girl from Montgomery, Alabama is about to do something extraordinary. When a white bus driver orders Claudette Colvin to give up her seat for a white passenger, she refuses to move. After Claudette is arrested, her brave actions help inspire Civil Rights leaders organize bus boycotts and perform similar acts to defy segregation laws. Eventually, Claudette's court case results in overturning Alabama's unconstitutional laws and provides greater freedom for black Americans everywhere.

In this unique graphic novel from the Graphic Library, young readers will learn about Colvin's little known but important role in the Civil Rights movement. Although leaders didn't want to make her the face of the Montgomery Bus Boycott, her court case helped change the law; a final chapter about Colvin's life after segregation explores her later life and the growing recognition of her courage today.
