Rosa Parks
By: Stephanie D.
New Jersey, Grade 6



I think that Rosa Parks is a brave and intelligent woman. She is one of the many woman who changed history. Rosa Parks inspires me, and I'm sure that she inspires many other people too. Her nickname is ''The Mother of the Modern-day Civil Rights Movement.'' One day Rosa Parks went onto a bus, and sat where ever she wanted. She didn't care if she got in trouble because she was tired. Rosa was aressted.Rosa Parks changed Black peoples bus rights so they could sit where ever they wanted to. Rose Parks has made us a mixed nation. Today Blacks and whites can sit together on a bus. There is no law. I'm happy that Rosa Parks made a change in our history!
