The Fight

Posted: April 17, 2012 by alisonadkins in AllisonA, Rosa Parks-- A Life in Poems

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,
threatened,
judged.
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.
