Her courageous decision had a huge impact on civil rights, eventually leading to the end of segregation on public transport.

The Little People, Big Dreams series shines a light on the lives of outstanding people from designers and artists to scientists. All of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream.
