A civil rights activist,Rosa Parks, was born on February 4, 1913, in Tuskegee, Alabama. She was a brave women that knew the consequences but still did what was right for all Africa Americans.
After her parents separated, Rosas mother moved the family to Pine level, Albama to live with her parents, both former slaves and strong advocates for racial equality.
One day, she got in a bus and sat down. As the bus went on, many white people were coming on the bus, so the driver told Parks to give up her seat. However, that asnt Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks sat, fastened in that seat and politely said she was not getting up.
The bus driver nearly turned red with anger, threatening to have her arrested. He demanded her to get up and give the seat. There was this other black and now they both had to get up, because heaven forbid a white man sit next to a Negro. The bus driver, still yelling and screaming, starts pointing his self-satisfied accusing fingers at her, telling her that she needs to get up.
