Using the article and the text provide in elearning (under Content section for week 10), discuss Rosa Parks’ activism while considering the issue of civil disobedience.  Thinking about Rosa Parks and other activists like her, do you believe it is acceptable to break the law in order to foment change? Why or why not? Must certain conditions exist? Thinking about Rosa Parks specifically, why do you think her very large role in the freedom movement is generally diminished by those speaking of her? For example, people often make her out to be a tired seamstress that just didn’t feel like sitting at the back of the bus.
