									After she did this, the Boycott began. Nytoria Wilson and Alesia Ridley Ms. Collins English Language Arts 10 December 2008 Why is Rosa Parks Called the Mother of the Civil Rights Movement? Rosa Parks was an African American Civil Rights Activist. She became best known for her role in a 1955 boycott of the Montgomery, Alabama bus system. Her part triggered the bus boycott when she refused to give up her seat to a white passenger on a bus. On December 1, 1955 Rosa had a very hard day. Forty-two year old Rosa Park sewed for the Montgomery Fair Department Store. She had spent the day pressing a lot of pants. Her back and shoulders hurt really bad. She purposely let one full bus pass in order to find a seat on the next one. Rosa remains active in the Civil Rights movement. She traveled, spoke, and participated in peaceful demonstrations. From 1965 to 1988, she worked in the office of Congressman John Conyers of Michigan. During those years, Rosa endured the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, jr., in 1968 and she suffered the deaths of her husband and brother in 1977 and her mother in 1979.

She was proud of the day she refused to give up her seat. Many threatened her life. She also received death threats. Peaceful protests, inspired by Rosa refusal to give up her bus seat, continued throughout the south. In 1960, four African American students sat down at a whites-only lunch counter.

The Montgomery bus boycott helped bring national attention to civil rights. The boycott launched Martin Luther King Jr .as the voice of the movement. In the 1960s,Rosa

What is the Succession of the United States Presidency? Who would take the place of the president if something were to happen to him? Well, I wanted an answer to that question so I decided to research it. As you know, the president is the first person in the whole line. Now, the question is who takes over if the president dies? That would be the vice president. Yes, I know I was very concerned about who was the next after that one or after the next one then the next one. Sounds confusing don’t it? If the vice president died the next person who would take place would be the speaker of the house. Amendment 25 in the constitution of the United States section 1. Claims In case of the removal of the president from office or of his death or resignation, the vice president shall become president. Section 2. Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the vice president, the president shall nominate a vice president who shall take office upon confirmination by a majority vote of both houses of Congress. This section provides for filling vacancy in the vice presidency. In 1973, Gerald R. Ford became the first person chosen vice president under this provision. President Richard M. Nixon nominated him after Vice President Spiro T. Agnew resigned. After the speaker of the house dies the President pro tempore of the Senate will take his place. There are up to 18 people in the line (not including the President). If they all die or get assassinated that would be one shocker. If you think about it 18 is a lot of people to take the place of the President if he died. There would have to be some kind of nuclear bomb that would end everything if some such thing happens. In other words it’s very rare for that to happen. Section 3. Whenever the president transmits to the president pro tempore of the Senate and the speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of the office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged by the vice president as the acting of the president. This section provides that the vice president succeeds to the presidency if the president becomes disabled. Vice president George H. W. Bush became the first acting

president. He officially held the position eight hours on July 13, 1985, when president Ronald Reagan had cancer surgery. Section 4. Whenever the vice president and the majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as congress may by law provide, transmit to the president pro tempore of the Senate and the speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President. declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President. Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office. The 25th amendment to the Constitution is important because it speaks more to how the President is succeeded in office, rather than who succeeds to the office. For example, it establishes procedures by which the Vice President and the Cabinet can remove the President when they judge him to be incapacitated. It also allows the President, when temporarily incapacitated, to temporarily surrender his powers to the Vice President. This provision has been used by President George W. Bush . One interesting note about the 25th amendment: It finally codified the tradition started by President John Tyler. In 1840, President William Harrison became the first president to die in office. Tyler was his Vice President and assumed the Presidency. However, Article II of the Constitution says only that the duties of a deceased President fall to the Vice President. It does not say that the Vice President becomes President. Some people in 1840 felt Tyler should be "Acting President" or some other position less than "full" President. Tyler disagreed, and governed as President in all respects. This became a tradition followed by the other 7 Vice Presidents who succeeded to the Presidency over the next 125 years. It was not until 1967 that tradition became law in section 1 of the 25th amendment.

How Does the Constitution Protect Your Freedom of Religion and Speech?

Imagine living in a place where you are not allowed to pray or worship God. Imagine not being able to attend a church. In some countries, people cannot worship the way they want, but the people who wrote the constitution thought that freedom of religion was important. The First Amendment gives us the right to worship God. Religion was very important to the founding fathers. Congress cannot make us have only one religion. We can be Baptist, Muslim, Catholic, or any other religion. Most of the first people who lived in America were Protestant. Many people were persecuted, killed, or mistreated because of their religion. Praying is part of freedom of speech and religion. However, freedom of speech is important. We often take it for granted. Imagine having ideas you could not share. In many counties that happens. Talking is not the only thing protected by the freedom of speech , art, music, activites, even clothse are protected by the freedom of speech. See in the 1787 they didn’t have T.V or radio. Some people argued that the strong national government described that the constitution was a good idea. People called Antifederalists, argued that the constitution will take too many rights away from state governments and also from individual citizens. Did you no that James Madison, wrote the constitution. In a free society, people are able to talk about what’s happening in there society.

Who Were Some of the Famous Women Leaders Of Egypt?

Women Rulers in the Ancient World

Imagine life as a woman in ancient Egypt. Women in the ancient world rarely ruled especially in America. They did not receive the right to vote until the 1920’s. Kings were considered to part god and part human. The king was considered to be an incarnation of the falcon god Horus and the poshumoud son of his father Osirus. Well, some women served as Kings or pharaohs of Egypt, and they were extremely respected for their power, beauty, and knowledge. Hatshepsut She was the fourth female pharaoh in Egyptian history. She married her half brother King Thutmose II. When Thutmose II died
unexpectedly about 1479 B.C. She is portrayed as a Within a few years, and with the support of the priests of the god Amun, Hatshepsut had herself crowned pharaoh alongside her stepson. Because Egyptians believed their kings were divine, she justified her new role by claiming to be the god Amun's daughter. She also had herself represented as a man on monuments. As pharaoh, Hatshepsut encouraged trade and sent an expedition to the land of Punt, somewhere on the northeast coast of Africa. She also sponsored a vast building program at home. She added to the temple of Amun at Karnak and built for herself a great memorial temple, known today as Deir el-Bahri. These monuments, though badly damaged when Thutmose III attacked Hatshepsut's memory after her death, have preserved her fame into the present day. In 2007, Egyptian archaeologists announced they had identified Hatshepsut's mummy. The mummy was discovered in 1903 in the Valley of the Kings, near Luxor, Egypt.

Cleopatra She was a queen of ancient Egypt and one of the fascinating women in history. Through her years as queen, she received a reputation for her beauty, but scholars disagree about her appearance. They agree, however, that she was intelligent, charming, witty, and ambitious. In 52.B.C., Cleopatra became co – ruler
