Most Significant Events 2

From the beginning of time, history has written the effect of social, economic and political events that were experienced by people from around the world. In this case I have been assigned with selecting one social, economic or political event that I believe was the most significant event following World War II and had a more powerful effect on the American people. The social or shall I state political event that I will be discussing is on Rosa Parks and her fight for civil right.

Although with reasonable understanding for requesting such changes, the then racial judicial system denied the request. The African American community was not surprised as they have been treated unfairly for their whole lives but it didn’t stop them from pursuing what they felt was owed to them which was equal bussing rights. As the boycott continues so does the determination of the African American community and this is shown by the next step in the fight against bus segregation. Although changes are denied, African American individuals hold their grounds and although months into the boycott they still find other ways to get to work. After awhile the bus companies start losing money which is shown by the act of discontinuing some bus routes and...
