Product Description
Rosa Parks was an African-American Civil Rights activist, whom the United States Congress called "the first lady of civil rights" and "the mother of the freedom movement". 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 U. S.

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, 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.

The presentation covers the following:
