Rosa Parks
By: MICHELLE R.
Florida, Grade 7



I AM NOMINATING ROSA PARKS BECAUSE SHE STOOD UP FOR HER RIGHTS WHEN THAT WHITE MAN WANTED HER TO GET UP OF HER SEAT AND GIVE IT TO THE WHITE MAN.THE REASON SHE DID THIS IS BECAUSE SHE WAS TIRED OF WORKING ALL DAY AND THEN COULDN'T SIT DOWN BECAUSE OF THAT WHITE MAN. THAT DAY SHE WENT TO JAIL JUST BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T WANT OT GIVE UP HER SEAT TO THE WHITE MAN.
