Interactive exercises

The back of the bus

Put in the correct words.

Buses in Montgomery, Alabama were, like all public institutions, segregated. Most customers were black since the more affluent whites already had cars. The buses weren't evenly divided in half— the front for whites and the rear for Blacks. The start of the “colored” section was determined by the number of whites on board. The more whites that boarded, the further back the white section extended. The more crowded the bus became with white patrons, the further the bus driver extended the white section in accommodation, regardless of the injustice to African Americams.

Furthermore black people had to pay the bus driver up front, then leave the bus and get in from the back of the bus.

Rosa Parks

Put in the correct form of the words. Sometimes you may have to add a word.

Rosa Parks being fingerprinted by Deputy Sheriff D.H. Lackey after being arrested for refusing to give up her seat for a white passenger on a segregated municipal bus in Montgomery, Alabama - Original.jpg

Rosa Parks was a seamstress by profession; but she also worked (work) as the secretary for the Montgomery chapter of the NAACP. Twelve years before her history-making arrest, Parks was stopped (stop) from boarding a city bus by driver James F. Blake, who ordered her to board at the back door and then drove (drive) off without her. Parks vowed never again to ride a bus driven by Blake.

As a member of the NAACP, Parks was an investigator assigned to cases of sexual assault. So she wasn't tired (not, to tire) of working in a factory but fed up with the situtaion when she refused (refuse) to stand up.
