Rosa Parks didn’t refuse to give up her seat because she was tired…at least not physically
And while she’s depicted as an older woman, she was merely 42 years old. To put that in perspective folks, Meagan Good is 41.
This is important because Rosa Parks was not passively protesting Jim Crow segregation; she was boldly and strategically defying it. As she said later, “I was not tired physically… No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in.”
