What starts out as a regular commute for a mother and son duo becomes a memorable event when Mrs. Parks from the tailor shop refuses to give up her bus seat to a white man. The boy and his mother witness this historic event in civil rights history as the brave Rosa Parks is escorted out of the bus by a police officer. As the boy sees her bravery and history is made, he goes from feeling shaky and afraid to strong and hopeful about the future.
