Rosa Parks
By: Liji K.
New York, Grade 7



I nominate Rosa Parks to the honor roll because she was a brave woman who fought for her civil rights. She was brave enough to refuse to give up her seat to a white passenger. She was arrested for that and started a boycott of the city buses that lasted for a long time. Later on, segregation on public buses became illegal. Therefore, she was headstrong and didn't give up easily.
