Rosa Parks Coloring Pages

February is "Black History Month," a month where our country sets aside time to honor African Americans who have changed the world.

"Rosa Louise McCauley Parks was an African American civil rights activist whom the U.S. Congress later called the Mother of the Modern-Day Civil Rights Movement.

On December 1, 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama, Parks, age 42, refused to obey bus driver James Blake's order that she give up her seat to make room for a white passenger. Parks' act of defiance became an important symbol of the modern Civil Rights Movement and Parks became an international icon of resistance to racial segregation."

Rosa Parks personalized story - This one is not a coloring page but I thought this was a neat way for your children to learn a little about Rosa Parks.

Personalize an online adventure story starring your child. in the story, they will travel back to 1955 in Montomgery, Alabama to meet Rosa Parks when she refuses to give up her bus seat. You can view the story online or print it out and make it into a booklet.
