On a chilly December day in 1955, Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama city bus. A 42-year-old soft-spoken seamstress, Rosa's courageous example has given strength to millions as they work for important changes in our society.
Little did Rosa realize the impact her actions would have. Though difficult and full of setbacks, Rosa's work continues to be an example for Americans today.
These two videos tell about Rosa's life and work. I especially like the second one. Produced by high school kids, it is inspiring and well done. How wonderful for young people to be a part of such significant projects!
