This post was originally published in 2012 but we love the Social Justice Project and wanted to revisit some of these great stories.
This is how the story of Rosa Parks begins (by Lee’Nyzha, elementary).
Hi! I am a woman who started something that will never change in history.
It all started a long time ago. I will never forget. It was called the Bus Boycott. That was when blacks stopped riding the bus and the bus company stopped getting money. I was born February 4, 1913. I mainly worked with Martin Luther King Jr. everyday. We stopped the Bus Boycott when the bus company learned their lesson.

Rosa Parka (WES20) is part of a series of Social Justice Leader rocks created by students of Whittier ece-8 in Colorado. We invite you to visit all WES rocks and submit your comments and feedback.
If you have found this rock or would like to continue this story, let us know!
