Transcript of Rosa Parks
I was always sick with a sore throat. When I was young my parents separated and I moved away with my mom. When I was a little older I met a very nice and polite white women.
I went to school at Montgomery Industrial School for Girls. Also, I went to Highlander Folk School. When I was in college I went to Alabama State Teachers College for Negros.

My family members were my father, James McCauley, my mother, Leona McCauley. I also had a husband, Raymond Parks. Other family member I had were my Grandfather, my Grandmother, mt brother Sylvester J. McCauley, and my Uncle.
I met Raymond at the age of 28 in 1930 and we went on our first date. On our second date Raymond proposed to me. Two years later in 1932 we were married.
I was born February 6, 1913. I was born in Tuskegee, Alabama. My birth parents were my father James Parks and Leona Parks, my mother. I died at the age of 92 in Detroit, MI on October 24, 2005 from natural causes.
Birth and death
In 1943 I got my first job as a secretary of the Montgomery chapter of the NAACP. My second job was at Maxwell Air Force Base.
I have many interesting facts! Here are a few. I had a brother in World War 2. Also, I met a white woman in 1954. After I was arrested I had many difficult times. Finally, Raymond and I moved from Montgomery for Hampton, Virginia; mostly because I was unable to find work. There are some facts about me!
