CUT THE RIBBON: ROSA PARKS

Posted on October 3, 2012 by admin

” No Sir, I won’t give up my seat ” maybe said Rosa that morning. Rosa Parks has been the first woman who refused to obey the order of bus driver James F. Blake. The man would tell this unknown seamstress, to move in the colored section and leave the space she was occupying to a white passenger. It was December th 1st 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama. Parks, arrested and fined for violating a city ordinance, later became the first woman and symbol of the Civil Rights Movement. This lonely act of defiance and disobedience began a movement for racial equalty that ended legal segregation in America, and made her an inspiration to freedom-loving people everywhere.
