Dear Rosa Parks , What You Have Done Was Inspiring && Thanks For Our Freedom On Buses

Rosa parks was a very peaceful person when she wants to be but when she got into it with that bus driver and the white man got into it. I think she had the right to sit down in that seat because she had to work all day. If i was rosa parks i would have stayed in that seat and still would not have got up when the cops came

Rosa parks is a extraordinary person because she stood up against racism and stood up for herself.It was even harder for her because she was a woman and in those days things were much harder for woman.She was one of the black african american woman who made the boycott

Rosa Parks is one of my heros the way she stood up for black and showed her feelings and what she thought. I admire her very much and I think it was fair to fight for blacks to be equal because no matter what race you are you are still people and she helped many people find this out.

We are doing project for Black History Month, and you are our person for the project. We have learned alot about you. We think that you did a very cool thing on December 1,1955. We love how you changed the way people think about blacks and their history. So we just want to say THANK YOU!!!!!

Ashley | 1/30/2005 5:48 AM
Hi Rosa I just wanted to tell you that I'm doing a book report on you and the things that I learned are that if you did not do what you did I would not have friends that are a different color, this world would not be the same, whites and blacks would not be able to go to the same schools and stuff and if I were you I would have done the same thing you will always be the mother of  the civil rights movement don't let any buddy tell you that you are not that you always will be and every body should respect that.
Jerry Hale | 1/26/2005 1:00 AM
Thank you for standing up for your rights and ours.  The respect you request from America made it better for everybody in America.  You have a very valuable museum in Montgomery on the campus of Troy State University.
