Lucy: What would've happened if Rosa Parks gave up her sit on the bus, or César Chávez had given up on the farm workers or Susan B. Anthony given up on the suffrage movement?
Rosa Parks(1913–2005) was an African American civil rights activist whom the United States Congress called the "Mother of the Modern Day Civil Rights Movement" and is most famous for her refusal in 1955 to give up a bus seat to a white man when ordered to do so by the bus driver,
provoking the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
César Chávez worked for the Community Services Organization (CSO), a Latino civil rights group. Chávez urged Mexican-Americans to register and vote. Eventually he started the National Farm Workers Association (NFWA). It was renamed to the United Farm Workers (UFW). He is also a prominent civil rights leader.
Lastly, Susan B. Anthony led the effort to secure Women's suffrage (the right for women to vote) in the United States.
