Rosa Parks was born on Feburary 4, 1913 in Tuskegee, Alabama. She was a supporter of the NAACP and CORE. She hated segregation.
"I don't think I should have to stand up."
She is most famous for the Montgomery bus boycott. The bus driver wanted her to move, but she refused. She significantly said, "I don't think I should have to stand up." She was arrested for it. This went into court to try to end this segregation, but it took many years to get this change.
No! I am not getting up!
In the early 2000's, Parks did an interview about the boycott. She said two significant lines which were, "People always say that I didn’t give up my seat because I was tired.", and I was not tired physically… No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in." She died on October 24, 2005 from natural causes. and she left a big legacy behind her. This legacy was to get everybody the equal rights they deserve, which we have today.
