      Rosa Parks

      On December 1, 1955, African-American Rosa Parks was arrested
      for refusing to give her bus seat to a white passenger. One year
      later, on December 20, 1956, the U.S. Supreme Court declared
      segregated bus seating illegal. During that year, the forty-two
      year old Montgomery seamstress lead a peaceful bus boycott that
      became a model for other civil rights protests.

      Girl Power: Rosa Parks
      This single page Rosa Parks feature is published by Girl Power,
      a public education campaign of the U.S. Department of Health and
      Human Services to help encourage nine to fourteen-year-old girls
      to make the most of their lives. Learn how Parks became "Mother
      of the Civil Rights Movement" and how she is still fighting the
      good fight against prejudice and discrimination.

      Montgomery Bus Boycott
      High-school student Lee Schneider (from Stoughton High School in
      Massachusetts) created this great Montgomery Bus Boycott
      slide-show as part of his larger Civil Rights Web site. I like
      it because each page is illustrated with photos, but I wish
      Schneider had credited the source of his pictures. At the end
      of the slide show, you'll have a chance to return to front page,
      and peruse "Preconditions to Racial Change," "Brown vs. Board of
      Education," and "Malcolm X."

      My Story: Rosa Parks
      My pick of the day is the Rosa Parks chapter of Scholastic's
      online exhibit "Culture & Change: Black History in America." It
      is the most comprehensive of today's sites and includes a Parks
      interview and in-depth coverage of the bus boycott and the 1956
      Supreme Court ruling that declared Montgomery's segregation laws
      unconstitutional. How would you feel in Park's shoes? Submit
      your essay for possible online publication (look for the orange
      Online Publishing button) and read comments from other kids (the
      link to Read Kids' Writing is only on the submission page.)

      Teachers Packet: Riding the Bus - Taking a Stand
      Although this collection of lesson plans from the Alabama
      Department of Archives and History is targeted at teachers, the
      information and primary sources it contains are valuable for
      anyone wanting to understand the history of the civil rights
      movement. The best clicks (after following the link to Riding
      the Bus) are the original scanned documents. These include a
      page from the Montgomery City Code (Section 10: Segregation of
      Races Required) and half a dozen newspaper articles. Don't miss
      "Integrated Bus Suggestions" co-authored by Dr. Martin Luther
      King, Jr. and distributed after the Supreme Court ruling by the
      Montgomery Improvement Association.

      Time 100: Rosa Parks
      Time Magazine names Rosa Parks as one of the "Heroes and Icons"
      of the twentieth century. The story told here about her historic
      Montgomery bus ride reveals a bit of behind-the-scenes politics
      that is rarely told. Parks was not the first Montgomery black to
      be arrested for refusing to cede a bus seat to a white rider;
      she was the third. It was Parks' beyond-reproach standing in the
      community (she was married and employed) and her political savvy
      (she was involved with the local N.A.A.C.P.) that made her case
      the perfect one to test the legality of Montgomery's bus
