My interview with Rosa Parks.

Storyboard Text

  • How do you feel about the way black Americans used to be treated?
  • "I always felt badly because our people were not treated fairly. We should have been free and given the same opportunities others had."
  • "When I was a young child couldn't understand why black people weren't treated fairly. But when I did learn about it, I didn't feel very good about it."
  • When you were little, did you understand that black people weren't treated fairly?
  • How did you feel about the people who treated you so unfairly?
  • "I don't think well of people who are prejudiced against people because of race. We cannot force them to think that all human beings should be treated fairly."
  • "Of course it felt like we should all be free people and we should have the same rights as other people."
  • How did it feel not to have civil rights?
  • What one lesson would you like to leave with students?
  • "I always encourage children to stay in school, get good grades, and to believe in themselves. Of course your health is important too."
  • Do you think the relationships between the different races are where they should be today?
  • "There is still as much racism among some people. It still exists, but we are not under the legally enforced segregation that we used to be."
