Rosa Parks is one of the most famous symbols of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. In an act of protest she refused to give up her seat to a white person and move to the back of the bus, even though it was mandated by the Jim Crow laws. Her brave actions inspired many African-Americans who joined together and were led by Martin Luther King, Jr., organizing the Montgomery Bus Boycott which began on December 5, 1955. Their peaceful protest ultimately met with success nearly one year later, on November 13, 1956, when the Supreme Court ruled segregation laws unconstitutional.
Rosa Park’s story will undoubtedly be taught in your child’s classroom; use this activity to promote additional dialogue about racial segregation and its impact on black individuals living in America during the 1870’s through the 1960’s. The writing and discussion that accompanies this activity will raise awareness of this era and encourage empathy for those who experienced unethical discriminaton. Your child will get valuable practice writing in complete sentences, articulating thoughts on paper, and developing oral presentation skills.
