What she wanted
When Rosa was little she had went to a small industrial school just for girls and the school praised the idea of self worth and consistently which was something Rosa’s mother always referred to, but when it was night time, she would hear lynchings, the ku klux klan, robberies, and sometimes worst, and when rosa got older she decided she wanted to teach people and so she went to university to become one, but since blacks at that time did not have many rights she was only able to become a seamstress. And so she desired for african americans to have civil rights.
Why she wanted it
While Rosa was growing older and the years went by and she saw how blacks were treated and wanted to help them so badly, one of the reasons for this was the corrupt police force, most of the time a african american was arrested the cops would beat them, hurt them or harass them. And sometimes kill them. And through her entire life and many others, she was treated as a second class citizen. Back then it was just survival for many African Americans, even Rosa was afraid that her house would be burned down.
How did she get it?
After Rosa got married to her husband, and they both decided to join NAACP in which she became a field secretary, which was a organization who would go to lynchings, murder and robberies and try to solve them the main reason for the NAACP was to challenge the law and its enforcement, when Rosa was on her way home, she used a bus to get home like usual, but when the front seats of the bus filled up in the white section, the bus driver instructed 4 African Americans to move off the bus. Three of them moved but one didn’t, that one was Rosa, she even knew what African Americans went threw if they did something bad or didn’t obey. She wasn’t scared though. She knew she was not alone in this
Positive and Negative Consequences
Positives: After Rosa was arrested, Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa formed the boycott of the Montgomery buses, and what made Rosa even more special is that before Rosa, two other women decided to not give up their seat but the people in charge decided that Rosa would be a better representative than the other two women was for her, impeccable character and flawless traits. With the bus boycott came the igniting of the civil rights movement, after the boycott ended, the law of segregation of buses was removed, leading the start of the civil rights movement all because a woman decided not give up her seat. And because of her contributions to the civil rights movement her body and casket were put in the state capital, a honor mainly used for presidents, she was the first woman and the second African american to stay there. When Rosa’s Husband died she decided she still wanted to teach people and so, she made a program for kids anywhere in the country to travel and learn more about the world. Because of Rosa’s efforts she was rewarded a congress medal and another, and she also had a medal established in her honor.
