Today as part of African American History Month we honor the pioneering and courageous spirit of Claudette Colvin. Nine months before Rosa Parks’ famous bus boycott, Colvin at 15 refused to give up her seat to a white passenger. She was inspired to stand up for her rights after learning about African American leaders in school. An outstanding teenager

Rosa Parks boarded a bus on December 1, 1955 after a long day of work. After a few stops all seats are full and when the next white person gets on the bus, she is asked to give up her seat. She refuses, is arrested, and placed in jail.

Rosa Parks. Proving even one single act of courage can change history & culture.

Rosa Parks - she said by her own actions that it is okay to protest and that it can result in change. Speak up! Be heard! Change the world!
