American civil rights activist who was known as ‘’ mother of the freedom movement’’ and ‘’the first lady of civil rights’’.
After her famous act of Defiance and Montgomery Bus Boycott she was considered as an important symbol of modern civil right movement. But this important icon of civil rights had to suffer a lot, as she was an African – American , she had to suffer terrible treatment in city, buses, stores, movie theater and many other problems.
Inspired by the boycott’s success thousands of people were inspired to listen to their new leader Martin Luther King Jr.
Mrs. Parks founded ‘the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute’ for self development. She was given a Congressional gold medal in 1999. But this bright sun never shined after 24 October, 2005. Mrs. Parks died at the age of 92 due to natural causes but she was and will remain alive in everyone’s heart.
