Rosa Parks, the woman who stood up by remaining seated !

In a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, Rosa PARKS, a young dressmaker refuses to give up her seat to a white man as it was the "law". She is arrested by police and sentenced to pay a fine of $ 15. This is the detonator of a revolt brewing but still lurking because the weight of fear (klu klu klan). A boycott against the bus company was launched, headed by a young black minister, Martin Luther King. Thank to her, he will give black people the courage to fight for their rights to equality with whites. On 13 November 1956, the Supreme Court declared segregation laws of Montgomery illegal. As Aliaa naked in her blog, a simple gesture is enough to blow a heinous but fragile system!
