Remember Rosa Parks Day - December 1st
On December 1st in Montgomery, Alabama in 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus due to racial bias. She stood up to the bus operator when asked to move and was later arrested. Ever since that day, America has celebrated Rosa as one of the most well-known activists against racial discrimination. Today, we salute her bravery to stand up for her rights and others who were treated unfairly, paving the way fighting for racial equality. REMEMBER ROSA!
