Everyone knows about Rosa Parks. All She did was refuse to give her seat up for a white man. And the rest was history. I found out that some people did not know that shortly after African American began refusing to ride the bus. This sparked the Montgomery bus boycott that lasted a little over a year. Due to the Montgomery bus boycott, the supreme court got rid of segregation on the bus systems. Yay!
Now today is a special day for me, and no its not because of the super bowl LII. It is because it is my 26th birthday and I share this day with my hero Rosa Parks. Although she was just an ordinary seamstress, she inspires me that one small action can have a ripple effect even years after youve passed.
