She started a civil rights movement simply by refusing to give up her seat on the bus to a white passenger. Rosa Parks was born in February of 1913 in Tuskegee, Alabama. Rosa Parks lived a very normal and simple life as a seamstress for the first 40 years of her life. Parks did not become involved in the civil rights movement until the early 1950's. She achieved remarkable prominence on December 1, 1955. It was on that day that Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the city bus to make room for white passengers. At the time, blacks were not allowed to sit in the front of the bus if whites were there. For her refusal, she was arrested, tried, and convicted for violating the law. Rosa Parks' case came before the Supreme Court in 1956 and they found that segregation was wrong. Rosa Parks died in 2005 at the age of 92. These Rosa Parks posters, pictures, and photos show her sitting down on the bush in front of a white passenger and they show her incredible life history.
