Rosa Parks, born Rosa Louise McCauley played a big role in the fight against racism and segregation. One December 1, 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat in the colored section of a bus to a white passenger after the whites only section was full. She was subsequently arrested and charged with civil disobedience in violating  Alabama segregation laws.

Her defiance and the Montgomery bus boycott which followed became important symbols of the civil rights movements. It brought about changes and the city of Montgomery was forced to lift the law requiring segregation on buses.

Rosa Parks action has taught us that just one person standing up for what her or she believes in can make a difference and bring about change. Rosa Parks we salute you and draw strength from your courage.
