Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

In 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, black teenager Claudette refused to give up her seat on the bus to a white woman. Nine months later, Rosa Parks did the same thing, sparking off the Montgomery bus boycott and changing the face of the South. Why do we all know Rosa Parks, but not Claudette Colvin?
