Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks(1913-2005)

Facts about her- Rosa was born in Tuskegee- She refused to give up her seat to a white man on the bus in 1955- Parks was arrested because of this incident- Her lonely act of defiance started a movement that ended legal segregation in America, and made her an inspiration to freedom-loving people everywhere

Quote from Rosa Parks:"I do the very best I can to look upon life with optimism and hope and looking forward to a better day, but I don't think there is any such thing as complete happiness. It pains me that there is still a lot of Klan activity and racism. I think when you say you're happy, you have everything that you need and everything that you want, and nothing more to wish for. I haven't reached that stage yet."

Later, Rosa and her husband settled in Montgomery. The couple joined the local chapter of the NAACP and worked to improve African-American's rights
