History remembers Rosa Parks as a tired, middle-aged woman who stood up to racism and segregation in the South by literally sitting down and refusing to give up her seat on a bus to a white passenger when ordered, sparking the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the Civil Rights Movement. As transformative a moment as it was, this singular act has come to define the entirety of her dynamic and multidimensional life—much in the same way the first four syllables of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech have come to replace the civil rights leader’s radical legacy. The truth is that Rosa Parks lived an entire life of activism, beginning as a child.
