Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks was a 42-year old Africa-American woman. She sat on the black section of the bus (a section where black people are supposed to sit). The white section was filled up leaving some white men standing. The bus driver wanted the 4 black people sitting next to the white section to move so that the standing men could sit. 3 black American reluctantly gave their seats to the white men, except for Rosa Parks. She passively refused to give up her seat. Mrs. Rosa Parks was convicted of violating the laws of segregation.
