These 10 meaningful quotes by Rosa Parks will make you think about life
Rosa Parks was a brave woman who was not afraid to stand against racist segregation laws on her own and mark the beginning of a great change. More than 60 years after her victory, her words of wisdom continue to inspire millions.
On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat to a white man and was arrested. She refused to pay the fine and continued to stand her ground, which resulted in an African Americans' boycott and started the Civil Rights Movement.
During the year, multiple protests took place - African Americans refused to use the buses. They had to walk long distances to get to work, but they didn't give up. More and more black people were joining the movement. Montgomery transport services started suffering losses (black people made up 70% of bus users), and white people were becoming more and more violent.
Nevertheless, the protesters were unstoppable. After 381 days of boycotting the buses, on 13 November 1956, Alabama's Segregation on buses officially ended, and Rosa Parks became known as “the mother of the civil rights movement”.
Here are some of the most inspiring and powerful quotes from a lady who was strong enough to encourage others to stand up with her and win:
Rosa Louise McCauley Parks, "the first lady of civil rights" and "the mother of the freedom movement", February 4, 1913 – October 24, 2005
