Rosa Parks, born February 4, 1913, died October 24, 2005. Rosa Parks was one of the people that change America to what it is today. Also, she’s one the reasons why there are no more racism around. America today is filled with many different cultures and people, thanks to Rosa Parks. What happen you may ask? Well, Rosa Parks refused to move from here seat in the bus and stand up for herself and her people. she was then arrested for her crime of not moving and letting a white seat in the seat. This created a riot and then more people stood up for Rosa Parks. She made America equal and no more who is able to get the better stuff. She’s known as the “The Lady of the civil rights”.
She wasn’t the only person to stood up at the moment. There were others like her that tried doing the same thing but were unsuccessful. What Rosa had was the ability to stand up for herself more then any other person. She was a secretary of the Montgomery chapter of the NAACP. Rosa also went to Highlander Folk, Tennessee center where she trained for rights and racial equality.
As a little girl, Rosa Parks had to work by farming and helping her mother in any way. It was hard for her as a young girl but she got through it. She was poor and suffering from poor health. When she had to go to school, she’d always walk because the bus didn’t accepted her kind. Only the whites were able to ride the bus and everyone else had to walk. Back then everything was hard for all African Americans because no one respected them. They were treated like trash and like there useless. Rosa Parks had to go through all that as a young girl which had to be hard.
As she grew up rules were changed and added. That’s where then African Americans were able to ride on the bus but in the back . if there are no more seats and a white wanted a seat, a black must get out of there seats and let the white seat there. That’s how it was for Rosa Parks but she didn’t move. In fact, she stayed in her seat till the cops came for her and arrested her. This is what you call “Bus Boycott”. Here in the right side you see this picture on how was the bus was set for everyone. Rosa Parks influence many people which had created a riot in front of the court where Rosa Parks jury was. Lines between the white and black were cross. Anywhere blacks go were set of rules that didn’t applied to white because there different. Rosa Parks went to jail and a few months later was interviewed and said “ I would have to know for once and for all what rights I had as a human being and a citizen”.
We know Rosa Parks as a hero in a way that made us come together and share what we have and know today. It was hard at first for everyone to come together because trust was hard for them to get around. Even though some may have fallen in love or became friends, some didn’t like that. They still stayed away from each...
