“People have said over the years that the reason I did not give up my seat was because I was tired. I did not think of being physically tired. My feet were not hurting.
 I was tired in a different way. I was tired of seeing so many men treated as boys and not called by their proper names or titles. I was tired of seeing children and women mistreated and disrespected because of the color of their skin. I was tired of Jim Crow laws, of legally enforced racial segregation.” - Rosa Parks, civil rights activist who would have turned 100 years old today
