Rosa Parks

The Mother of the Civil Rights Movement Rosa Parks, "The Mother of the Civil Rights Movement," is a symbol of freedom for the world. She is a woman of quiet courage, dignity, and determination. In this one-woman show her life is presented from her childhood days as a field hand. Rosa Parks' mother and maternal grandparents encouraged her from an early age to stand up for herself and to feel good about herself even though she was mistreated because of the color of her skin. On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to surrender her seat to a white male passenger and was arrested by the Montgomery Police. Her simple act of courage set in motion a chain of events that forever changed American race relations and redirected the course of history. "Your performance brought tears to my eyes." Teacher "Thank you for sharing your talents with my fourth grade class, it really helps them understand what happened in the past." Teacher
