I am really tired from working all day. I just want to take this bus and go home.
Please give up your seat, madam, or we will have to call the authorities.
Do what you must.
Rosa Parks worked a hard job as a seamstress in Montgomery, Alabama. She had been tired not only because of the work, but also tired of being bossed around by other people because of her skin color.
James F. Blake, the bus driver, tried to get Rosa Parks to leave the seat in the bus because another white person had wanted to sit in the seat.
Due to Rosa Parks not giving in to the bus driver trying to force her off the bus, she unintentionally started a giant protest during the civil rights movement.
Thousands of people of color boycotted the bus system, which was called the "Montgomery Bus Boycott" due to no one of color taking the bus anywhere anymore and causing extreme amounts of money to be lost.
Rosa Parks had been arrested and fined for $10 because of "civil disobedience" when she simply did not enter through the right door on the bus.
While she was arrested, the supreme court decided that the segregation of buses was completely unconstitutional and she was released from prison.
