Rosa Parks

Rosa was born on October 24, 1913 in Pine Level, Alabama. She had a job when she was young to make some money for her family because they were poor. When she was a little bit older Rosa met a boy who she loved and got married. Rosa's brother died from cancer, and a few months later Rosa's husband died from cancer at that time. When it was only her mom and herself, Rosa went on the bus and there were no more seats on the black side so Rosa sat in a white person's seat and refused to give it up, so she went to jail. That's how Rosa was very famous. Rosa Parks was a great woman and she stood up for herself on the bus. When Rosa got older she won awards for what she did. Rosa Parks died when she was 92 years-old on October 24, 2005.
