"When it comes to justice, there is no easy way to get it. You can't sugarcoat it. You have to take a stand and say, ‘This is not right.'" – Claudette Colvin On March 2, 1955, an impassioned teenager, fed up with the daily injustices of Jim Crow segregation, refused to give her seat to a white woman on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Instead of being celebrated as Rosa Parks would be just nine months later, fifteen-year-old Claudette Colvin found herself shunned by her classmates and dismissed by community leaders. Undaunted, a year later she dared to challenge segregation again as a key plaintiff in Browder v. Gayle, the landmark case that struck down the segregation laws of Montgomery and swept away the legal underpinnings of the Jim Crow South. Based on extensive interviews with Claudette Colvin and many others, Phillip Hoose presents the first in-depth account of an important yet largely unknown civil rights figure, skillfully weaving her dramatic story into the fabric of the historic Montgomery bus boycott and court case that would change the course of American history. Claudette Colvin is the 2009 National Book Award Winner for Young People's Literature and a 2010 Newbery Honor Book.

Chelsea Clinton introduces tiny feminists, mini activists and little kids who are ready to take on the world to thirteen inspirational women who never took no for an answer, and who always, inevitably and without fail, persisted. Throughout American history, there have always been women who have spoken out for what's right, even when they have to fight to be heard. In early 2017, Senator Elizabeth Warren's refusal to be silenced in the Senate inspired a spontaneous celebration of women who persevered in the face of adversity. In this book, Chelsea Clinton celebrates thirteen American women who helped shape our country through their tenacity, sometimes through speaking out, sometimes by staying seated, sometimes by captivating an audience. They all certainly persisted. She Persisted is for everyone who has ever wanted to speak up but has been told to quiet down, for everyone who has ever tried to reach for the stars but was told to sit down, and for everyone who has ever been made to feel unworthy or unimportant or small. With vivid, compelling art by Alexandra Boiger, this book shows readers that no matter what obstacles may be in their paths, they shouldn't give up on their dreams. Persistence is power. This book features: Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, Clara Lemlich, Nellie Bly, Virginia Apgar, Maria Tallchief, Claudette Colvin, Ruby Bridges, Margaret Chase Smith, Sally Ride, Florence Griffith Joyner, Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor--and one special cameo.

« Prenez une profonde inspiration, soufflez, et suivez ma voix, désormais, vous êtes noir, un noir de l'Alabama dans les années cinquante. Vous voici en Alabama, capitale : Montgomery. Regardez vous, votre corps change, vous êtes dans la peau et l'âme de Claudette Colvin, jeune fille de quinze ans sans histoire. Depuis toujours, vous savez qu’être noir ne donne aucun droit mais beaucoup de devoirs... » Seulement, le 2 mars 1955, dans le bus de 14h30, Claudette Colvin refuse de céder son siège à un passager blanc. Malgré les menaces, elle reste assise. Jetée en prison, elle décide de plaider non coupable et d'attaquer la ville. Avant elle, personne n'avait osé et ce jour marque le début d'un itinéraire qui mènera Claudette Colvin de la lutte à l’oubli. Noire est l'histoire de cette héroïne de quinze ans, toujours vivante, et presque méconnue. Noire est le portrait d'une ville légendaire, où se croisent Martin Luther King, pasteur de vingt-six ans et Rosa Parks, couturière de quarante ans, pas encore Mère du mouvement des droits civiques. Noire est le récit d'un combat qui dure encore contre la violence raciste et l'arbitraire.
