Where it all began

  • It all happened in America where all the slaves were kept and treated like animals. And they used to sell them or trade for something useful e.g. tobacco,cotton and sugar.


  • If you was black in the 60s then it would have been very hard because all the black people were treated horribly and the white people were doing it.They didn’t just get hurt they were certain things that they couldn’t do e.g. The children had to go to a rubbish school and even give up their seat on buses or in queues.


  • On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks, a 42-year-old African American woman who worked as a seamstress, boarded this Montgomery City bus to go home from work. On this bus on that day, Rosa Parks initiated a new era in the American quest for freedom and equality.

She sat near the middle of the bus, just behind the 10 seats reserved for whites. Soon all of the seats in the bus were filled. When a white man entered the bus, the driver (following the standard practice of segregation) insisted that all four blacks sitting just behind the white section give up their seats so that the man could sit there. Mrs. Parks, who was an active member of the local NAACP, quietly refused to give up her seat. Then the man reported her to the police and later said this sgreation.
