the power of one

Early life

Rosa Parks is an amazing person because

she would let us know that everyone should be

treated the same way whites and blacks should all be the same

Rosa Parks was born on February 14th,1993 in Tuskegee, Alabama. She lived on a farm with her grandparents, mother and her younger brother Sylvester. Rosa had a sister in law. When she was little she liked to feed the animals on her grandparents farm. Rosa would sit

with her grandpa because at a sometimes at night white people

would burn crosses and do a parade around a church because they didn't like black people. her grandpa would have a shotgun in his hand just in case the white people came and tried killing them. Rosa learned at an early age that black people were treated differently.
