Ms. Rosa Parks - I didn't actually meet her, but attended the public viewing of her body at her memorial. I stood in line for hours to get the opportunity to whisper to her that I would see her again one day in heaven.
Rosa Parks...Civil Rights heroine Rosa Parks touched off the Montgomery, Alabama bus boycott by refusing to give up her seat in the colored section to a white passenger. Parks was arrested for civil disobedience but not without becoming an influential symbol for racial equality. Her court case served as step towards ending segregation laws in the south.
Rosa Parks su rebelión dio lugar a una amplia campaña de protesta, liderada por Martin Luther King, que tenía entonces 26 años. Durante 381 días, los ciudadanos afroamericanos boicotearon la compañía de transportes. El movimiento, que siempre fue pacifista, llevó, un año después, a la abolición de las leyes de segregación por parte del Tribunal Supremo.
