All of these frustrations eventually manifested in Rosa not giving up her seat on the bus. After getting out of jail, her boss at the NAACP started a boycott of the Montgomery buses with Rosa and Dr. Martian Luther king Jr.. Eventually, the supreme court ruled in favor of Rosa parks over her unconstitutional arrest, and the Montgomery bus boycott was lifted after the city let black and white people sit wherever they wanted. But this wasn’t the end of Rosa’s story. Rosa wanted civil rights everywhere, so she participated in peaceful marches. Eventually, Rosa’s acts inspired other people to do the same, and overtime, the movement became more and more powerful.
This is an image of the bus Rosa was kicked off of.
But, Rosa’s actions didn’t just go away over time, they had consequences. Rosa’s marches gained notoriety, and gave attention to Dr. Nixon(Rosa’s boss at the NAACP) and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Both of their houses were bombed due to their opinion on segregation. Rosa’s marches were also attacked by the police, even though the protesters never tried to harm people. Although there were sad outcomes to Rosa’s actions, there were positive ones too. Rosa inspired multiple people speak out for their rights, and rose people like Martin Luther King Jr. to fame. Rosa also was freed of all charges concerning the incident at the bus and walked free, getting a good representation. Rosa's unconstitutional also made it illegal for black people to be treated the way she was treated.
At the end of Rosa’s legacy, a question come into mind. Was she successful in achieving her goal? In my opinion, I think she was successful in getting civil rights. Although she wasn’t giving big speeches in public like Martin Luther King Jr, she inspired other people to help in the movement. Heck, she was the person who started it! Rosa's arrest also made it illegal to even treat black people like that, accidently getting some rights to black people. In the end, Rosa Parks was an inspiration to many, and her actions shaped the way African-Americans live and are being treated today.
I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free... so other people would be also free.
