Rosa Parks


Rosa Parks was a Black woman who was arrested for refusing to give up her seat on a bus in Alabama to a white man. Her arrest angered civil rights leaders who organized a city-wide bus boycott. The Montgomery bus boycott lasted 381 days and was one of the largest and most successful mass movements against racial segregation in history.
