Spotlight : Women in history, Rosa Parks

15 Jul

Most historians date the beginning of the modern civil rights movement in the United States to December 1, 1955. That was the day when an unknown seamstress in Montgomery, Alabama refused to give up her bus seat to a white passenger. This brave woman, Rosa Parks, was arrested and fined for violating a city ordinance, but her lonely act of defiance began a movement that ended legal segregation in America, and made her an inspiration to freedom-loving people everywhere.



Many thanks to women like Rosa Parks, with out these strong women in history we would not be here today speaking our minds and freely able to paint! Read more on Rosa Here.
