Rosa Parks's life A fantastic woman

Rosa Parks...
family
Rosa's mother wanted her to get a high school education, but this wasn't easy for an African-American girl living in Alabama in the 1920s. After finishing up elementary school at Pine Level she attended the Montgomery Industrial School for Girls. Then she attended the Alabama State Teacher's College in order to try and get her high school diploma. Unfortunately, Rosa's education was cut short when her mother became very ill. Rosa left school to care for her mother. when she backs to school, finally earning her high school diploma. Something she was very proud of.
Montgomery Industrial School for Girls
A few years later Rosa met Raymond Parks. Raymond was a successful barber who worked in Montgomery. They married a year later in 1932. Rosa worked part time jobs.
During this time, the city of Montgomery was segregated. This meant that things were different for white people and black people. They had different schools, different churches, different stores, different elevators, and even different drinking fountains. Places often had signs saying "For Colored Only" or "For Whites Only". When Rosa would ride the bus to work, she would have to sit in the back in the seats marked "for colored". ". Sometimes she would have to stand even if there were seats open up front. In her country Rosa Parks was very discriminate because she was colour and she can’t do a lot of things. She always was punished because she was colour. So the social, political situation in her country discriminated the colour people. She was an americans activist who fought for equality of civil rights between the white american and the african-americans.
It was on December 1, 1955 that Rosa made her famous stand (while sitting) on the bus. Rosa had settled in her seat on the bus after a hard day's work. All the seats on the bus had filled up when a white man boarded. The bus driver told Rosa and some other African-Americans to stand up. Rosa refused. The bus driver said he would call the police. Rosa didn't move. Soon the police showed up and Rosa was arrested.

Among them the one that I prefer is:“You must never be fearful about what you are doing when it’s right.” I really like this phrase because I think to feel free should not be afraid of what we think, what we say and what we do. I think she is a person to be respected because he has fought to achieve quality of rights between whites and blacks in America.
She died in Detroit of natural causes on 24 October 2005 at the age of 92 years. a lot people cried for she anda lot of people had gone to her funeral.

Curiosity:

"People say that I didn't leave my place to that man because I was tired, but it's not true. I wasn't tired physically, I was tired of give in them and feel inferior without any reason"
