Rosa Parks is Arrested

Rosa was not treated fairly because of her skin color. While sitting on the bus after working all day in December 1955, Rosa was told to give her seat to a white person. She refused. Rosa did not want to move because it was not fair that people of color had to stand so that white people could be comfortable. The bus driver called the police and Rosa was arrested. This incident became a big part of the Civil Rights Movement. This led to the Montgomery Bus Boycott, where people refused to ride the bus for over a year. The Supreme Court then made a decision that said African Americans could sit wherever they wanted on buses.
