Product Description
This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the Civil Rights - Key Figures - Rosa Parks. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

By refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery, AL city bus in 1955, black seamstress Rosa Parks helped initiate the civil rights movement in the United States. The leaders of the local black community organized a bus boycott that began the day Parks was convicted of violating the segregation laws. Led by a young Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the boycott lasted more than a year—during which Parks not coincidentally lost her job—and ended only when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that bus segregation was unconstitutional.

Over the next 50 years, Parks became a nationally recognized symbol of dignity and strength in the struggle to end entrenched racial segregation. In the years following her retirement, she traveled to lend her support to civil-rights events and causes and wrote an autobiography, “Rosa Parks: My Story.”

In 1999, Parks was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest honor the United States bestows on a civilian. When she died at age 92 on October 24, 2005, she became the first woman in the nation’s history to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol.
