Rosa Parks quote: People always say that I didn't give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn't true. The only tired I was, was tired of giving in. Link to her biography on Black History: http://www.history.com/topics/black-history/rosa-parks

Rosa Parks was asked to move to the back of the bus where black people were expected to sit, by the whites. When she refused, police became involved, essentially leading to her arrest. Rosa Parks is a true Civil Rights leader, due to her strength and bravery. This arrest eventually led to the Montgomery Bus Boycotts, where African Americans did not use the buses, but walked instead.
