…Rosa Parks…

Rosa Parks was an african american who refused to give up her seat on the bus to a white man. “Our mistreatment was just not right, and I was tired of it,” writes Parks. “I kept thinking about my mother and my grandparents, and how strong they were. I knew there was a possibility of being mistreated, but an opportunity was being given to me to do what I had asked of others.”The rest of Parks’ story is American history…her arrest and trial, a 381-day Montgomery bus boycott, and, finally, the Supreme Court’s ruling in November 1956 that segregation on transportation is unconstitutional. Rosa Parks is a very well know woman.

I think you should put like a bus or something on the door and take pictures of us on the bus and someone looking like Rosa Parks.
