Bus Ride To Justice

This is an excellent book. It details not only Mr. Gray's life, it also speaks about the struggle of an entire nation of people. I recommend this book to any and everyone who would like to have more information about the struggle of black people for their basic rights,ie to seat any where they please on a public bus, to vote, to an adequate education in your own state. I enjoyed the book immensely. I will continue to use it as a reference.
