AN EVERYDAY LADY



On December 1, 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama, Rosa Parks refused to obey a bus driver’s order to give up her seat to make room for a white passenger. At the time of her action, Rosa Parks served as the secretary of her local NAACP chapter. But even so, she acted as a private citizen.


Although she was later honored for her stance, she suffered for it. The local department store where she worked fired her from her seamstress position. Her decision to simply "not take it any more" drastically changed the course of human history.
