Rosa Parks | by

Rosa Louise McCauley Parks,
Passion as fierce as sharks.

She was reaching for equal rights,
Started a movement with her might.

She climbed aboard a bus,
Up ahead in the front.

Where she shouldn’t have been,
Having colored skin.

She was told to go behind,
But she had a strong mind.

A boycott of buses began,
And that was the plan.

People began to understand,
And now segregation is banned.
