Really? From your friends? What did you learn?
No! My teacher!
Oh. Well, what did she tell you? Exactly?
She told us how one time after work Britney was riding on a bus. Some people wanted her to move to the back, but she said (here Sophie gets a Very Serious expression on her face and slowly shakes her head no) "No. I worked hard all day and I am very tired. I will not move."
I said, huh, I think you mean Rosa Parks? but Sophie was too intent on her story to answer.
And, then, THEN she had help, from, from, from. . . DOCTOR KING! And now everyone can sit where they want on the bus. But, then she got old, and not too long ago, she died. It’s very sad.
Sophie, that was a woman named Rosa Parks. Remember, we’ve read books about her before?
No Mom. No. It was Britney, a long time ago. When she was young. And black.
