Rosa Parks got arrested for not giving her seat up on a full bus.
A white man walked on the bus and told Rosa to move so he could sit down. Rosa then refused to move to the back of the bus, so she was arrested.
After Rosa got arrested, many people knew that segregation was very bad.
Since she got arrested for not giving up her seat on a bus, the black community boycotted buses all over the country.
What is segregation? Segregation is the separation of races because they are that certain race.
Segregation of African Americans and white people was inappropriate.
Whites and African Americans weren’t allowed to go to the same restaurants, schools and even water fountains.
Segregation may very in type (gender, race) or length.
Racial segregation was classified as a “social difference”.
Segregation is not only in the United States, but all over the world.
Segregation in the United States is based on race and ethnicity.
The reason there was segregation in the United States is because the United States was welcome to many different cultures.
