Rosa Parks was a  hero to all African Americans. She was born on Febuary 4 1913 in Tuskegee, Alabama. At the age of 19 she got married to a man named Raymond Parks .He worked as a local barber. Raymond was a member of NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). He would stand for himself to be not intimidated by whites.


One day when Rosa went on a bus she noticed the bus driver was James Blake. Rosa had a incident  with a James. When he called all african americans to stand and go to the back Rosa moved to the window seat. James came over and talked with Rosa.


James:Are you going to stand up?

Rosa:No,I'm not

James:Well if your not going to stand up I'm going to have to call the police

Rosa:You may do that


So James called the police and Rosa got arrested.
