Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks was a civil rights activist and leader, most known for refusing to give up her seat on a segregated bus. Her act of defiance helped spark the Montgomery Bus Boycott, a successful nonviolent protest that eventually led to the desegregation of Montgomery's bus system. Parks' fight for equal rights and fair treatment for people of all races is inspirational.

"People always say I didn't give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn't true. No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in." ~ Rosa Parks
