Rosa Parks
By: Nakeisha G.
Missouri, Grade 7



I have choosen Rosa Parks because it is because of her that I can sit anywhere I wont to sit on the bus and it doesn't matter what the color of my skin.Thanks to her arrest it was a test case for the NAACP and civil rights leaders for segregation on the buses and provided a spark to the famous bus strike that lasted for 13 months.For 13 months the blacks had to either car pool or walk to work or where ever they had to go.So these are my reasons why I choose Rosa Parks.Thank you so very much I realy appreciate it.God bless
