Write a short essay answering the following questions about Rosa Parks’ memoir Rosa Parks: My Story:
The popular image of Rosa Parks as a meek, passive, turn-the-other-cheek sort of person is quite different than the impression that emerges from her memoir. Indeed, as a child, when a white boy called her “nigger” she threatened him, “If you come over here, we’ll give you a good beating” (p.51). As an adult Parks hosts a meeting of heavily armed civil rights activists in her home.
Using evidence from Rosa Parks: My Story, support or oppose the argument that Rosa Parks agreed with the necessity of armed (violent) self defense as a political tool in the fight for Black civil rights.
The essay should be roughly four to five double-spaced, printed pages with references (footnotes or endnotes)
