Back To School - School BusRosa Parks was born on February 4, 1913. She grew up in Tuskegee, Alabama.

As a child, Rosa Parks experienced a lot of prejudice. She used to stay up with her grandfather to protect the house from the Ku Klux Klan. She also defended herself with bricks when white boys tried to beat her up.

Rosa Parks grew up to become a courageous young woman who fought hard to end racism. Along with her husband, she participated in marches, sit-ins, and boycotts to show her support for equal rights.

It was one particular boycott that made Rosa Parks famous. On December 1, 1955, during the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat on a bus.

Rosa Parks was taken to jail and charged with breaking a segregation law. She refused to pay the $10 fine. She would not support an illegal law. Her actions became a symbol of the fight against inequality and showed the importance of standing up for what is right.
