Session Four: History Rosa Parks 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6qnscw

Watch this short animation to learn more about the life of Rosa Parks.

  • In 1950s America black people were treated unfairly. One person who tried to change this was Rosa Parks.
  • At that time, southern states in America had something called 'segregation'. This meant people of different skin colours had separate schools, restaurants, and even toilets. Segregation happened on buses too.
  • On December 1, 1955, Rosa was in a bus seat for black people, but the white peoples' seats were full. The driver wanted Rosa to give her seat to a white person, but Rosa refused.
  • She was arrested and taken to jail for a few hours.
  • Rosa didn't fight alone, though. People organised a bus boycott, which meant they stopped using buses for a year. This meant the bus company lost a lot of money. The boycott was a peaceful stand against racism.
  • Judges eventually said having separate black and white parts of buses was not allowed.
  • Rosa had to move away to a new city to find work. She lived in Detroit for the rest of her life, which was very far from Montgomery.

 

Now for a quick recap.

Watch this short film from CBBC Horrible Histories to tell you more about the actions of Rosa Parks.
