Her refusal to surrender her seat to a white male passenger on a Montgomery, Alabama bus, December 1, , triggered a wave of protest December 5, that reverberated throughout the United States. Her quiet courageous act changed America, its view of black people and redirected the course of history. Her brother, Sylvester McCauley, now deceased, was born August 20, Later, the family moved to Pine Level, Alabama where Rosa was reared and educated in the rural school. She, however, was unable to graduate with her class, because of the illness of her grandmother Rose Edwards and later her death.
It follows the adventures of a young Rosa Parks learning important lessons. As a child, young Rosa Parks was shoved by a white boy, even though she was just minding her own business. She shoved the boy back. This experience teaches her to stand up for herself and for what is right. The idea for the "Ordinary People Change the World" series came to Meltzer as he was shopping for his young daughter.
Postage stamp honoring Rosa Parks. Was it commissioned? I initially designed a Rosa Parks art quilt for my first exhibition held at the Rosa Parks Museum, and had begun this project when I was still living in California. My goal had been to continue work on the quilt when I returned from my first Paris trip in the summer of , but radial nerve damage in my hand slowed down the work. I put it aside with the goal of including it in my next show. After several years of work, I finally completed the Rosa Parks quilt in the months leading up to her th birthday. I decided to release a print card in honor of the celebration.
