Rosa Parks (Bus Boycott)

The bus boycott started on- December 1, 1995
The bus boycott ended on- December 20, 1996

FACT:Rosa Parks trained for this movement her entire life.

OPINION:People think that the reason Rosa Parks did not move is because she did not want to get up and move to the back of the bus, and because she was lazy

Evidence: I read  autobiography that Rosa Parks wrote and she said this information.


Question #1: who started the bus boycott?  When did it start and end ?

Answer #1:Joanne Robersons started the bus boycott on December 1,1955 and it ended on December 20,1956.

Question #2: how would life be different today is Rosa Parks was never alive?

Answer #2: Lots of buses and public places tould be still segregated today

Question #3: Why was Rosa Parks put in jail?

Answer #3:she would not give up her seat to a white man, and that was the law that that she had to give up her seat and she did not do that

Question #4: How did this event impact the overall civil rights movement?

Answer #4: After Rosa Parks refused to move for the white man, it was a turning point in history because the year after the passed a law saying no more segregated buses, the law was called that they were trying to pass was Browder vs Gayle   

Quote
Marten Luther King Jr.  "believed that if they had 60% cooperation at the bus boycott it would be a success"
What this means in my words
If most people would cooperate then there would be happiness  in the world.




MY WORD: boycott
Means: to stop using something for a long time
Sentence: They stopped using the buses for over 1 year and they called it the bus boycott.
Picked this word because this is what people  did to protested  peacefully, and to make the goverment relize that they should not have segrogated buses

This is the bus Rosa Parks was riding when she was told to give up her seat for a white man

This is were the bus boycott happened
