All about the woman who changed civil rights and America
What Amazing things she did during her lifetime.
After the fight
Rosa did not attend a public school until the age of eleven. Before that, she was homeschooled by her mother. At age eleven she attended the Industrial School for Girls in Montgomery, where she took various vocational and academic courses. She began laboratory school for her education, but never completed it because she was forced to drop out to care for her ailing grandmother.
Rosa and Sylvester Mccauley were segregated white people/kids from black people/kids in almost every part of their daily lives. This included public restrooms, drinking fountains, education and transportation. For the children attending school, there was busing for the white children to their school, but the black children were required to walk to another school. This was difficult for Rosa.
