This paper is an analysis of Rosa Parks’s traumatic childhood in her autobiography entitled Rosa Parks: My Story. Her experience of racism and discrimination at early ages, reinforcement of Jim Crow laws, and the Ku Klux Klan’s actions in the black communities are shades that have affected Rosa Parks’s life. The poor education she receives shows not only her personal position of inferiority as a black child in the United States, but more that of all African American children on the American soil.
Keywords: African American children, Jim Crow laws, Ku Klux Klan, bad education
