  • Rosa Parks was an American-African civil rights activist from the city of Montgomery in Alabama. At the time in South Africa there were discriminations that is to say that white people and black people went to different places: school, churches, shops and sit in separate parts of public means of transportation.
  • Rosa had to walk for miles to go to her school, while white students went to school by bus.

She CHANGED the rules

  • Also received death threats and in 1957 she moved to Detroit whit her family.
  • One day, in Dicember 1955 she refused to give her seat to a white passenger on the bus, and she after said, "I felt I had a right to stay where I was".The bus driver called the police and they arrested her. After this fact there were thousands of black people in the city and they all refused to use the buses for more then a year.
