My Risk Taker Rosa Parks By: Saniah Lee
My birth name was Rosa Louise McCauley and I later married and became Rosa Parks. I was born February 4th, 1913 in Tuskegee, Alabama.
Growing up I dealt with racism, and being called very ugly names. Things didn't get better either as I became older.
Colored people couldn't use the same restrooms, or eat at the same tables as whites.
I continued to deal with the segregation laws. All while undergoing harsh words, and treatment all the way into adulthood.
Meanwhile one traveling home from work. All buses are segregated. Which means to the back of the bus for me. I really need to rest my feet.
While sitting on the back of the bus I was told to give up my seat to a white person. I didn't do give up my seat and was thrown off the bus and in jail. Then the movement began.
I joined Dr Martin Luther King and marched for equal rights, to be treated with fairness, and to end segregation. Creating a better future for children of color.
Because of what I did on that bus and stood up for equal rights. It help put an end to segregation and broke barriers for change.
I stood up for what I believe and took a risk by not giving up my seat. I am just a "risk taker" in a small globe of change.
