Jeanne Theoharis – “The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks”


Jeanne Theoharis

Civil rights icon Rosa Parks didn’t make national headlines until she refused to move to the back of a Montgomery, Alabama bus in 1955, but she had already spent years in an often dangerous struggle for civil rights. Professor Jeanne Theoharis of Brooklyn College at the City University of New York joins us to discuss “The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks”, her new biography of the civil rights icon.
