Rosa Parks
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     There was a time in America when laws prevented black people from being treated like white people. In many parts of the country, white Americans were treated much better than black Americans. This was especially true in southern states.
 
2     Laws called "Jim Crow laws" kept black Americans separated from white Americans. Black Americans had to use different facilities from white Americans. They had different bathrooms. They couldn't sit in the same areas in restaurants. Children couldn't attend the same schools. Black Americans were even forced to ride in different sections on buses.
 
3     Black Americans knew that these laws were about more than being told to use separate facilities. They were about being treated badly. The separate facilities for blacks were poorly maintained, if at all. Jim Crow laws were based on racist beliefs.
