MY ROSA PARKS BEAR by Donna A. My hero is Rosa Parks. If I could make up a bear, I would choose Rosa Parks because of her courage while sitting on the bus. I would make the bear purple because she wore a purple outfit on that day. I would also add a purple hat and glasses. I would have a bus as her logo. On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks boarded a public bus in Montgomery, Alabama. She did not give up her seat to a white male, even though the law stated she must do so. Parks was arrested and found guilty. This led to the Montgomery Bus Boycott which lasted 381 days. One of the leaders of the boycott was Martin Luther King, Jr. On November 13, 1956, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled segregation on public buses was illegal. On December 21, the bus boycott in Montgomery ended. Read about Rosa Parks.
