About Rosa Parks:

Rosa Louise McCauley Parks (February 4, 1913 – October 24, 2005) was an American activist in the civil rights movement best known for her pivotal role in the Montgomery bus boycott. The United States Congress has honored her as “the first lady of civil rights” and “the mother of the freedom movement”.

On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, Parks rejected bus driver James F. Blake‘s order to vacate a row of four seats in the “colored” section in favor of a White passenger, once the “White” section was filled. Parks was not the first person to resist bus segregation, but the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) believed that she was the best candidate for seeing through a court challenge after her arrest for civil disobedience in violating Alabama segregation laws, and she helped inspire the Black community to boycott the Montgomery buses for over a year. The case became bogged down in the state courts, but the federal Montgomery bus lawsuit Browder v. Gayle resulted in a November 1956 decision that bus segregation is unconstitutional under the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

      1. Agree 100%, very lucky man. Many years later, I had the fortune to meet the “Rosa Parks” of Poland, the woman who inspired the solidarity movement with an equally powerful act of defiance against the communist regime on the docks of Gdansk. An equally beautiful and heroic woman… although I couldn’t understand a word she said!! LOL

        1. Wow you have really met some amazing people! That is so lucky! People who stand up like that are so inspiring because everyone wants to be the person who made a difference but it takes so much courage to actually be that person. Hahah well I’m sure she was amazing even though you couldn’t understand her 😝

          1. Yes, absolutely. We should be inspired by them and stand up with courage for what we believe and for one another. Thank you for posting your inspiration!
