Rosa Parks said: “I’d see the bus pass by me every day…but to me, that was a way of life; we had no choice but to accept what was the custom. The bus was among the first ways I realized there was a black world and a white one.”
On December 1, 1955, what did one woman on a Montgomery Alabama Bus do to deserve such accolades and why? What drove her to her actions and what did she hope to achieve? How did this change her life, and the lives of others in the United States? Rosa Parks’ story will serve to remind all who hear it that we cannot always stand by and observe the status quo. Sometimes, we have to take a seat to be heard and knowingly place our personal comfort aside in order to bring about the changes that will help “We the People…” form that “…more Perfect Union” that is our Nation’s promise.
