Rosa Parks, the fortunate woman, luckily got to the black community by chance and then changed the world for them. Rosa Louise McCauley Parks (4 Feb 1913 – 24 Oct 2005) was her real name. On Dec 1st, 1995 when Parks ignored the bus driver and stood fearless and bold. However, she was not the first lady to reject the bus driver. But this time, it was Rosa Parks and the order of James Blake (the bust driver) went blank. The segregation of the bus seats that used to reserved for only white passengers came to the end. She was the first person from the black community to boycott the Montgomery buses. This bus now called as Rosa Parks bus.
