Rosa Parks

by Xavier from Cherry Hill


My hero is Rosa Parks. She helped the world. She sat in the middle of the bus when she was supposed to sit in the back. She fought for civil rights so that everyone could be treated fairly. My hero lived in Alabama, and died in Detroit, Michigan. My hero was born in 1913, and married Raymond Parks in 1931. She thought everyone should be treated fairly and I agree.
