Rosa Parks in 1956 - African-American civil rights activist, one of the first persons to resist bus segregation
Rosa Parks --- Rosa Louise McCauley Parks was an African-American Civil Rights activist, whom the United States Congress called "the first lady of civil rights" and "the mother of the freedom movement". Wikipedia
Before Rosa Parks, there was Claudette Colvin. She was 15 when she refused to give up her seat to a white passenger.
Rosa Parks had come at the end of her rope (so to speak)! She became a symbol of the Civil Rights Movement because she was a good woman who did no sin, neither was guile found in her mouth. I am glad I got to hear her speak before she was laid to rest and have reverential respect for her memory every time I cross Rosa Parks Blvd. in Montgomery, Alabama
