Changes After the Turning Point
After Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat, she would soon leave a huge impact on the people in the South. She intended to give them a purpose to stop the laws in the South, and to show the democratic governments that all they were doing was wrong. She wanted them to realize that the Jim Crow laws treated people unequally and weren't fair. The African American people were encouraged to start a Montgomery Bus Boycott and become activists in the Civil Rights Movement. They convinced African Americans to stop using public transportation and to stop purchasing merchandise from many stores. Soon quickly many people became inspired and wanted to become involved in the bus boycott by walking or taking a bike, instead of using public transportation. The Civil Rights Movement offered speech's in churches to tell the African Americans that they have been mistreated for many years. The more the African American people stopped using public transportation, the more the bus company lost an immense amount of money. They're idea was to convince the government to change the Jim Crow laws, and pass down new laws that treat all citizens equal. The people became frustrated, and began seeing the expense of the laws. Rosa Parks, a brave woman that lead the way to more freedom for African Americans and encouraged all people to work as a team and accomplish their rights together. Her turning point changed the laws, and soon it became illegal to have segregation in public places. Rosa Parks had changed history in America, and has left an impact in our thoughts. Since her turning point encouraged so many people to stand up for their own rights, she encouraged herself to stand up for her freedom too. Nowadays all people have freedom and the right to stand up for themselves. The minds of many people have been changed, and with this change they treat people fairly. With no more Jim Crow laws, all African Americans can live in harmony.
