Rosa Parks Printable (** for premium members only)
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 Montgomery seamstress lead a peaceful bus boycott that became a model for other civil rights protests.
Academy of Achievement : Rosa Parks Profile
Get face-to-face with Rosa Parks in my pick-of-the-day site from the Academy of Achievement . The biography and photo gallery are both excellent, but my favorite clicks are the Parks interview (available in text, audio or video) and the Black History Month lesson plans (look in the left-hand column under Teachers.) You'll find plenty of other heroes to browse while you are here. Look for the list of Academy of Achievement honorees that are related to Parks, and further down the sidebar you'll see a list of the most popular.
Montgomery Bus Boycott: The Story of Rosa Parks
In the months before Parks refused to give her bus seat to a white man, several other black women had also been arrested for similar incidents. Why was it Park's refusal that lead to the Montgomery bus boycott? Learn more about the boycott and its place in the civil rights movement in this online special published by the Montgomery Advertiser newspaper. Best click is the interactive time line (covering from 1954 to 1957) with embedded video clips.
