Nice to meet you, I am, Rosa Parks. As I was saying, Susan, he was telling me about how he rebelled against the Catholic church a while back.
We campaigned against alcohol and made petitions for women to have the right to vote. I also established the New York State Women’s Temperance Society, the New York State Women’s Rights Committee, American Equal Rights Association, and the National Women’s Suffrage Association. Rebelling came pretty easily because I voted illegally in the presidential election and was arrested and fined $100, which I never paid. Writing was also a passion as I produced ‘The Revolution’, a women’s rights newspaper and wrote the ‘History of Women's Suffrage’. Because of my accomplishments, I was able to get an amendment updated, and my portrait on the dollar coin.
That sounds phenomenal! Rosa, did you tell him about your rebellion?
Not yet, but I will now! So when I was younger, violence was all around me. I grew up in Tuskegee, Alabama. Segregation and the KKK had a big impact on my daily life. As I grew older, I became tired of the segregation around me and the way people were treating each other. So one day, I decided to change that. I was sitting on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, and a white man wanted my seat. I did not move for him, and I got arrested. I denied the conviction and fine, which sparked The Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s-1960s. Also, a 13-month bus boycott began in Montgomery that was organized by Martin Luther King Jr. How funny, you both have the same name! Anyways, that movement made the Supreme Court decide that segregation on public transportation was illegal. In 1996, I received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and in 1999, I received the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Wow, what a remarkable woman!
But that is nothing compared to what my friend Susan over here did! I would not be able to vote!
Well, I do not want to brag, but I did manage to change a few laws in my day. I was raised as a quaker in the 1800s and was part of an abolitionist movement with my family. I was involved with women's suffrage rights and protested against alcohol. I realized at political conventions that nobody would take me seriously if I, myself could not vote. I was also denied a chance to speak at a temperance convention because I was a woman. My friend Elizabeth Cady and I were fed up and decided to take a stand.
Both of you are very impressive! And very brave for your work as well, I commend you.
Thank you, you as well!
Yes, it was very kind of you to share your story with us!
Well, Susan and I best be on our way now. Hope to see you again!
