"You must never be fearful of what you are doing when it is right"- Rosa Parks

"Each person musr live their live as a model for others"-Rosa Parks

She started a boycott against Montgomery buses because she refused to give up her sit to a white person and was arrested for it. Parks stood with Marther Luther King Jr and his civil rights movement. She is saying to me that white and black people are created equal and deserve the same rights as each other. Rosa Parks is one of the few women to take part of the Civil rights movement. She stood up for women all around of the world. Civil rights for black people was horrible at this time.
