Rosa Parks: Real Story Of A Real Hero
Rosa Parks Last Bus RideDecember 1, 1955.  One brave and determined woman made a fateful decision that changed the course of human history.  Rosa Parks’ decision to challenge the segregation of buses in Alabama sparked not only the Civil Rights Movement in America but also other nonviolent protests throughout the USA and around the world! After her heroic act of protest, it fell to Dr. King to build a movement that could persist in a protest that would take over a year. Despite personal attacks, arrest, threats and daily pressure, Martin Luther King’s first steps in organizing a protest were successful.
