Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consecteteur

On December 1st, 1977, Rosa Parks a long lasting member of the NAACP, went to sit ona bus for a ride. There was a white person on that bus who "needed" her seat. She refused to stay silent so she spoke up and said no. In that time you can't say no to a white person if you were colored. Rosa was mentally and physically tired of beingg captured away from freedom, even though colored people were free legally, they weren't socially free. That day she got arrested for breaking the law and this led to many acts and protests towards colored peoples' freedom and rights.

Rosa Parks letter she wrote in jail.

The bus Rosa Parks got arrested on for not sitting.

The policeman who arrested Rosa Parks.

This was a meaningful piece and it was heartfelt to Rosa Parks. In this letter, she was writting her feelings towards being physically, mentally, and emotionally tired.

This was the policeman who ordered the arrest on Rosa Parks. He arrested her not knowing what big protest was about to come.

This was the bus she got arrested on. I am not sure if this is the original bus, but it is in a museum so I think it is. I chose to put this in because this bus took a very special role in the Bus Boycott.

On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. A member of many freedom organizations, had ordered a speech on that date to talk about freedom and rights. KIt was famously known as the "I Have a Dream" speech..More than 200,000 attended the speech in Washington DC. It was broadcatsed nationwide and helped freedom so much that it lead so many people and activists to have more protests.

This was a little bit of his most famous speech, and maybe even one of the top famous speches in history!

These were the microphones that he used during his most famous speech.

This was the outfit he was wearing during the speech and the crowd he was talking to in person, many ore on live television.

I chose this artifact so the reader of this Genially to get an idea of what the speech sounded like. This is one artifact of many. This speech was the most famous speech during that time and one of the most known to history now!

This is a very important artifact because these microphones helped his voice and speech broadcast all over the country on hundreds of television channels. Also some of them helped people who were there in real life all the way in the back here him from thousands of feet away.

This outfit is very famous. He wore this to his most famous speech ever. He dressed formal because he knew that his own speech would go all over the World and he wanted people to get a good first impression on him if they have never heard of seen of him before.

In 1960, four freshmen Greensboro, North Carolina, went to a local restaurant. Woolsworth lunch counter was the famous restaurant that started this famous protest. When they went in, they did not get served because they were colored people. They patiently sat there the whole day. Every day they would come into the reataurant hoping they could be served and never resorted to violence. This act finally became more and more popular and so many students came to protest. July 25, 1960, the protest finally ended. And colored people were served and allowed into restaurants.

Greensboro Sit-ins

This was the restuarant that the Greensboro Sit-ins all started.

These were the 4 freshman who started this great and popular protest. Ezell Blair, Jr., Franklin McCain, Joseph McNeil, and David Richmond

This is an example of some people and signs that were used during this popular Protest

This is a very important restuarant because this is where this big protest started. I am pretty sure that the restuarant is no longer available anymore but the counter and the seats are in a national museum.

Thousands, maybe even millions of these types of signs were used during all protests and this particular protest. These helped people who couldn't talk, use their voice in a new way. Also instead of everyone shouting, you can't understand what anyone says so you write it so people can read it instead.

These 4 men were the most important part if this protest. They were the reason that this protest started. Without them and their braveness and willingness, maybe today colored people would still not have rights.
