Rosa Park was a famous black American woman who helped fight for equal rights in Alabama. Rosa was born in February 4, 1913 in Alabama. Rosa grew up at that time when black people did not have the same rights as white people did. Rosa Parks went to school at the black elementary school in her town. Rosa left school because of a death in her family. Her first job was sewing clothes for people. She and Raymond, her husband, become active in the fight for civil right for black people. They joined in the NAACP, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, to help in the fight for equal right. Once she sat on the bus, there were no more seats where the black people could sit. So she sat where the white people sat. Then a white person came and he wanted to sit, so the bus driver told Rosa to get up and stand. But she refused, so the bus driver called the police and she got arrested. A lot of people admired Rosa because of how she helped the civil right movement.
