The Fight

The day I took a seat on that bus
was the start of a beginning.
Refusing to give that man my seat
was the best thing I’ve ever done.
No more being mistreated,
It was all over.
The fight against segregation had just begun.
and I was determined to win.

Rosa Parks was arrested on Thursday, December 1, 1955 because she refused to give up her seat to a white man.
