Who is Rosa Parks?
Rosa Louise McCauley Parks (February 4, 1913 - October 24, 2005) was an American activist in the civil rights movement. Life for African Americans was hard. There were a set of laws that claimed to give African Americans "separate but equal" status and treatment but, in truth, there was no 'equality' whatsoever. The laws also meant that black people could be arrested for the smallest thing. On December 1, 1955, after a long day at work, she got on the bus and took a seat. At that time in Montgomery, seats at the front of the busses were reserved for white passengers and the seats at the back for black passengers. When the bus became full and a white man boarded, the driver asked Rosa to give up her seat and move to the back of the bus. But she refused and therefore got arrested.
