Rosa Louise McCauley Parks was civil rights activist best known for her crucial role in the boycott of a bus In 1955, when she declined to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery, Alabama bus in the United States of America. From that very moment Rosa Parks (1913-2005) ignited the civil rights movement. Today the united state congress refers to Rosa as “the First Lady of Civil Rights” and “the mother of the struggle for independence.” Rosa Parks was born to James McCauley, a carpenter, and Leona McCauley, a teacher, and Rosa Louise McCauley was born in Tuskegee , Alabama. But what must people do not know is that this wasn’t the first time Rosa Parks had clashed with driver James Blake when she refused to give up her bus seat in 1955. Previous to that event Parks entered onto the very same packed bus, paid her fare at the front, then defied the rule in place for blacks to disembark and re-enter through the back door. Rosa Parks took a stand, however, the enraged, James Blake called for her cooperation. However, rather than giving in, Parks left the bus.
