That was the day when an unknown seamstress in Montgomery, Alabama refused to give up her bus seat to a white passenger. This brave woman, Rosa Parks, was arrested and fined for violating a city ordinance, but her lonely act of defiance began a movement that ended legal segregation in America, and made her an inspiration to freedom-loving people everywhere
Rosa Parks. One day in 1955 a black woman refused to give up her place on a bus to a white man, she sparked off a boycott of the bus system that lasted for over a year. It also led to a end of segregation on buses, and brought Dr Martin Luther King Jr into the civil rights movement.
#24 " It was not pre-arranged. It just happened that the driver made a demand and I just didn't feel like obeying his demand. I was quite tired after spending a full day working. " -Rosa Parks This woman is the true hero of the civil rights movement.
Rosa Parks changed the world because she didn’t give up her seat and would not get off of the bus, she went to jail.
