Rosa Parks
About Rosa Parks
Rosa Parks was born on February 4, 1913 in Tuskegee, Alabama. She worked as a house keeper before she joined the civil rights movement. She also worked at the Montgomery Fair, which was a department store. She died while sleeping in October 24, 2005, age 92, in Detroit, Michigan.
Personnel Background
Rosa Parks attended rural school until she was 11 and moved to Highlander Folk School, and later, Alabama State Teachers College for Negroes. She had a husband named Raymond Parks, and he worked as a barber in Montgomery. He was born in 1932, and died at 1977. They had no children.
Personality Traits
Famous For.....
Rosa Parks was famous for refusing to give-up her seat on the Montgomery Bus. She was later placed in jail for this act. However, her act had ignited the civil rights movement and its first act, the Montgomery Bus Boycott. She then was arrested, paying a fine of $10 and a court cost of $4 which was $120.39.
Since Rosa Parks was a second class woman, she didn't have much rights as others. If it wasn't for M.L.K and Clifford Durr, a lawyer who defended a lot of civil activists, she wouldn't have come out of jail after the boycott that happened in Montgomery.
One of Rosa''s most famous quote is
”Each person must live their life as a model for others”
This quote says that you should act nicely and as a role model towards other people.
People thought of Rosa Parks as a brave, strong, and a willing activists who believes that black people has the same rights as white people.
