Rosa Parks

Rosa Louise McCauley Parks (February 4, 1913 – October 24, 2005) was an African and American civil rights activist from the U.S. congres later called the "Mother of the Modern-Day ‘civil rights movement’
On December 1, 1955 in Montogmery.Alabama, Parks when se was 42, refused to obey bus driver James Blake's order because she didn´t want to leave her sit for a white passenger. Her action was not the first of this type: Irene Morgan, in 1946, and Sarah Louise Keys, in 1955, had won rulings before the U.S. Supreme Court and the Interstate Commerce Commission respectively in the area of interstate bus travel.
Because of that Parks becam an important symbol of the modern Civil Rights Movement and Parks beame an internation resisten of racial segration.When this occurs Parks works for ‘rights and racial equality’,but she lost her job so she went to work to Detroit.Michigan and get a job similar to that.
In my opinion Parks is an important campaigner because she want the same rigths and racial equality, and I thin all we are the same and we don´t have to discriminate someone beecaus of his/her coloir or because she is English or Spanish.But I don´t understand very well that if she work por the equal rights and the racial equality we she didn´t want to give up her sit for the white passenger to sit on.

I always give my students this example when they say "one person can do nothing to change the world". I like it!

I think Rosa Praks is a great woman and I understand perfectly why does she do not let her sit to a white person.

I am very impressed because only a few years ago in a developed country like USA there was such a racial segregation.

I think that this is shameful because one sees that even it makes the respect small not existia between some and others and that less badly that now already it finds mas of setido commonly and these things are not done. Also I am made happy that it finds persons as Rosa Praks because thanks to them we are not the human beings what eramos before!!!
