Rosa Parks I decided to do Rosa Parks because she was a big impact in history.
Rosa parks died on October 24,2005 at the age of 92.The reason why Rosa Parks parks took action.Rosa Parks had trouble with the bus driver in past times like not going around to the back door which blacks are supposed to do during the time period.This occasion in December 1,1955 in Montgomery, Alabama.There was three black people sitting,a few bus stops later a few white men stepped onto the bus and most of them sat down except for one and the bus driver told for all the blacks to stand and let the white man have a seat.
The bus driver noticed that Rosa parks did not stand up,so the driver asked if she was going to, but she said “no” the bus driver made sure that she was comfortable with her decision and of course she was.The bus driver would not put up with Rosa Parks decision so he called the police.Two police men arrived at the bus and walked into the bus and the driver told the police that she would not stand up for the white man that couldn’t find a seat so the policeman walked down to Rosa and asked her why she wouldn’t stand up, and she said,I don’t think it is right for me to stand up. Rosa said why should the blacks keep getting pushed around, she asked him. And he said, I don’t know, but the law is the law and you are under arrest. As soon as he said that, Rosa Parks stood up, and the three of them left the bus together.
She was determined that she’ll let it be known that she did not want to be treated in this in the way of hatred. She had no fear at that particular time. I was thinking mostly about how inconvenienced I was stopping her from going home and doing my work something I had not expected.Because of what Rosa Parks did which helped start the civil rights movement.The civil rights movement gives equal rights to the blacks, so you could say that because of Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King the blacks would live freely like the whites which changed the world forever.The blacks were white the civil rights movement but the whites were highly against it because they truly thought that the blacks were like a whole nother species, but little did they know that they were the same but different color.I personally wouldn’t have done the same thing because i wouldn’t want to go to jail also it takes a very brave and determined soul to do what she did.The blacks took initiative like never before They held public office and sought legislative changes for equality.
In 1868 the 14 amendment gave blacks equal protection under the law.Then the 15 amendment gave Blacks the right to vote.Still to this day there are whites who still see blacks differently, that once enslaved and now an ordinary person on the same field as the whites.The blacks have always been seen as property to the whites and not as a regular human being. When Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat to the white man in 1955, it wasn’t the first time she’d ignored the bus with the driver. Rosa Parks stepped onto the very crowded bus. 12 years earlier, paid her fare at the front, then resisted the rule in place for blacks to disembark and re-enter through the back door.
She stood her ground until Blake pulled her coat sleeve, enraged, to demand her cooperation. Parks left the bus rather than give in.Rosas lifeRosa’s mother was a teacher and the family valued education erson. Rosa moved to Montgomery, Alabama, at age 11 and eventually attended high school there, and laboratory school at the Alabama State Teachers College for Negroes. She left at 16, early in 11th grade, because she needed to care for her dying grandmother and, shortly thereafter, her chronically sick mother.The boycott ultimately led the U.
S. Supreme Court to outlaw racial segregation on public buses in Alabama. It also spurred more non-violent protests in other cities and catapulted a young Baptist minister named Martin Luther King Jr into prominence as a leader of the civil rights movement. The movement and the laws it prompted including the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, are one of the greatest social revolutions in modern American history.
