Rosa Parks

by Aihops and the help of

I don't know where she lived, but I do know about her greatness and that she's still alive. One day,Rosa got on the front seat of a bus,(and in case you didn't know it africans were not allowed to sit in the front seat of the bus)the bus driver told her to move to the back. Rosa refused to move

She was tired of being pushed around by people.So the driver called the police and arrested her. Soon nobody would go on the buses,as a boycot began,and that's why I picked Rosa to be my hero, she stood up on her own two feet.
