Modeling Close Reading Rosa Parks was an African American Woman who worked hard as a seamstress in a department store in the early 1960’s. One day, tired from work, she refused to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, and became a national hero. She was arrested and placed in jail for her refusal to move to the back of the bus, where African Americans were forced to sit in those days. The way she was treated garnered national attention. Some people say her refusal to give up her seat launched the civil rights movement. Rosa Parks proved that one brave person can make a difference.
