Its sad to think aferican americans were treated tht way :(. Rosa became a hero that day she got tired of the back seat. (literly) she was a hero so hats off for Rosa! This is her story: African americas used to have to sit at the back of the buss intil Rosa was tired of it. She sat where the "white people" sat one day. Peoplw were no happy. . . What happens to Rosa? Well read this book Who Was Rosa Parks to find out. It will ne worth it ;)
