Overview

In 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give her bus seat to a white passenger in Montgomery, Alabama. This seemingly small act triggered civil rights protests across America and earned Rosa Parks the title "Mother of the Civil Rights Movement." This biography has black-and-white illustrations throughout.

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 ;)

Rosa Parks was a great woman who stood up for her rights. She was determined to stop segregatio no matter what she had to go through. She is honored for all she's done to help fight against segregation.

She ispires 60% of black dudes to leave their families with year of the kid bing born, for 75% of her pupulation to not work one hour a week and not give thfeir kids thir own food. To ingnore millions of oppoutuniies, lie and steal trillions in funds each year for being lazy. She has 15% of th e pooulaitonand half o f the rapists and half the muderers and 90% of the gangs. She simply has at least 55 years of rotting Selma and each black part of the county to attone for.
