  • Erinn says, “Rosa Parks was born on February 4, 1913, in Tuskegee, Alabama. Her father, James McCauley, was a carpenter. Her mother, Leona Edwards, was a teacher. When Rosa was young, she and her mother moved to Pine level, Alabama. At age 11, Rosa was enrolled in the Montgomery Industrial School for Girls. From there, she went to the Alabamas State Teacher’s College High School.”

  • On December 1, 1955 Rosa Parks was riding home from work on a crowded bus. She was sitting with three other African-Americans. When a white man got on the bus there was no place for him to sit. The bus driver ordered Rosa and the three African-Americans to get up and stand in the back so that the white man could sit. The other three did as they were told, but Rosa Parks did not. She refused to get up. The bus driver stopped the bus, called the police, and Rosa Parks was arrested for disobeying segregation laws. (Phillis)
  • Rosa Parks being Awarded.
  • Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat on a bus to a white man made her famous. People all over the United States followed her example and began to take action against racial injustice. Rosa Parks became known as the “mother of the civil rights movement”. (Erinn)
  • Her Monuments!
  • Today there are lots of Rosa Parks monuments, she is honored for her courage and bravery everywhere!
  • Rosa Parks continued to be a leader. In 1987 she created a center to help young people achieve their life goals. The Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self Development Web site explains how they help youth through “life skills that demonstrate dignity with pride, courage with perseverance and power with discipline in a comfortable environment of peace”. (Phillis)
  • In 1999 Rosa Parks was given two great honors. The United States Congress gave her the Congressional Gold Medal, and the governor of Alabama gave her the first Governor’s Medal of Honor for Extraordinary Courage. The following year Rosa Parks was inducted into the Alabama Academy of Honor. This group honors one hundred living people from Alabama for their contributions to the state. (Phillis)
