She didn't give a speech however later in life she did give some interviews. Rosa Parks most famous speech, which she delivered on December 1, 1955 on a bus in Montgomery Alabama, went exactly like this, "I don't think I should have to stand up."
She helped stop discrimination. She was on a bus, which during those times black people had to give up their seats if a white person wanted it. Most black people would have to sit in the back and without a seat, and when someone came and wanted the seat, she said No. They called the police and she… was arrested. This news was heard by Martin Luther King Jr. who rallied many many people to start a petition by not riding the buses. Eventually the bus transportation went very low on money, that they decided they would allow white and black people to be able to sit wherever they want on the bus. Rosa Parks had a long history of working for civil rights, as a member of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). She is best known for inspiring the Montgomery (Alabama) Bus boycott in 1955. The buses were segregated and black people were expected to sit at the back and always give up their seat to a white person. Rosa Parks was a seamstress and she was exhausted after a long day of work. She got on the bus and sat down, refusing to give up her seat to a white person. This courageous act of civil disobedience was a punishable offense in the south, and she was jailed, which outraged her supporters. They decided it was time to boycott all the buses until segregation was ended. (MORE)

Rosa Parks was able to accomplish all that she did because she was very determined, she had an organized group to support her efforts, and most important, the time had come to take action. She was the right person in the right place a the right time. She had the quite and unassuming reserve that ins…pired people to do great things. Every American should know the story of Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks was a special influence on a large number of people at a critical time and place in American history. Her great claim to fame is that she refused to give up her seat on a bus to a white man in 1955. For this refusal, she was arrested. She was not the first person to be arrested for this crime, but at the time she was working as a volunteer for the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People), so she was personally familiar to all of the civil rights leaders in her community. Because of her age, martial status and other demographic factors, they recognized her as the perfect symbol around which the people could rally. She was not chosen to be such a symbol before she committed her act of defiance. Her decision to break this immoral law was a spontaneous one. The boycott which followed was very carefully planned. Rosa Parks lived in Birmingham, Alabama. At the time, this also happened to be the home of Martin Luther King, Jr. Martin Luther King, Jr. lead the boycott that followed the arrest of Rosa Parks. It laster for over a year. African American citizens refused to ride the buses of Birmingham until they were allowed to sit in the front. The bus companies needed the revenue from the African American community, but they stubbornly refused to give in for over a year! African Americans with cars volunteered to help transport each other around the city until the boycott was lifted. It was an enormously important event. Other enormously important events of this time period were: The Supreme Court decision in Brown v. The Board of Education (1954) and the 1953 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom where Dr. Martin Luther King gave his I Have a Dream speech. (MORE)
