ROSA L. PARKS 1913-2005

~~Rosa Parks, our lifesaver. Our nation would’ve never have been the same without her braveness and proving her point by refusing to give up her spot for a white man. Rosa Parks was born on February 4th 1913 and peacefully passed in October 24 2005.

"You spend your whole lifetime in your occupation, actually making life clever, easy and convenient for white people. But when you have to get transportation home, you are denied an equal accommodation. Our existence was for the white man's comfort and well-being; we had to accept being deprived of just being human."

What Did Rosa Want? Rosa was in a community of ¨Women Activeness¨ and was organizing to take on segregated buses. This is important because Rosa and the community needed to prove that they shouldn´t be treated differently because they are black.

Why Did She Want It? Rosa Parks had the awareness to let people know that blacks like her can make a difference in the world. Rosa was so brave she was able to prove that she can show people she is a person no matter what race or color she is.

How Did She Try To Get It? She Had to prove her point to everyone that this life Back people were living wasn't okay and she had to make sure that Black people got the freedom they deserved.

What Is The Positive/Negative Effects? "Three of the other black passengers on Rosa’s bus complied with the driver, but Rosa refused and remained seated. The driver demanded, "Why don't you stand up?" to which Rosa replied, "I don't think I should have to stand up." The driver called the police and had her arrested. Later, Rosa recalled that her refusal wasn't because she was physically tired, but that she was tired of giving in." This quote was by "Rosa Louise Parks Biography." , Rosa Parks Institute for Staff

"The Southern Christian Leadership Council established the Rosa Parks Freedom Award in her honor, and in 1979 the NAACP awarded her its Spingarn Medal. In 1987 she cofounded an institute to help educate young people and teach them leadership skills. " Rosa earned the Freedom award because she worked very hard to get what she thought was right. I think this is important because she was now able to educate kids and show them they can be a leader too just like Parks.

Opinion On Rosa Parks I think Rosa Parks Is AMAZING. She inspired me so much after I started studying her!
