Today, I am going to talk to you about Rosa Parks. I would like to understand how Rosa Parks became a figure of civil rights?

Firstly i will speak about her early life, then i will focus on her fight against racial segregation and finally i will explain why i choose to talk about her.

Rosa Parks was born Rosa Louise McCauley in Tuskegee, Alabama, on February 4, 1913. 

She was an afro American who became an emblematic figure of the fight against racial segregation in USA.

In 1932, at 19, she married Raymond Parks, a long-time member of NAACP, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Rosa Parks worked as a seamstress for many years, but also as a nurse. In December 1943, Parks became active in the civil rights movement, joined the NAACP working as a secretary.

Rosa Parks in her long fight for the civil rights movement is best known for her role in the Montgomery bus boycott. One day Rosa Parks and three other black people were seated in a bus when a white person got on the bus and wanted a seat. So the driver demanded to them that they had to  leave their seats. Then the three other blacks got up, but Mrs. Parks refused to stand up.     

Eventually, two police officers approached the stopped bus, and placed Parks in custody.                                           The Black population of Montgomery boycotted the buses on the day of Parks’ trial.

The participation in the boycott was very large in the black community. The Montgomery bus boycott continued for 381 days. Finally, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled on Mrs. Parks’s case. It made racial separation illegal on city buses. That decision came in November 1956, almost a year after Mrs. Parks’s arrest.

Then became very active in the Black Power movement and the support of political prisoners in the US. Moreover she organized and collaborated with civil rights leaders, including Edgar Nixon and Martin Luther King Jr.

Rosa Parks died on the 24th of October 2005, at the age of  92.

To conclude, I chose to talk about Rosa Parks because in her entire life she has demonstrated enormous courage and determination in her fight to gain civil rights for the community of black people in America, she was a true heroine.

Thank you for listening to me.

I am going to talk about the tv series Game of thrones

What particularly interests me is understanding: why game of thrones is so popular

To answer the question I will firstly talk about the origins of the series, secondly  about the plot’s series and the critics it received, then I will finally give you my personal opinion.

Game of thrones it’s an American fantasy tv series produced by HBO channel. It is based on A Song of Ice and Fire, a series of fantasy novels written by George R. R. Martin.

The writer George R R Martin, author of the novels, had received many movie and series adaptation proposals, but he always refused. The show-runners Benioff and Weiss approached the idea to adapt the novels in 2006. The two show-runners presented the project and convinced Martin during a meeting that lasted five hours.

The tv series has been transmitted from 17 april 2011 to 19 may 2019, by the american channel HBO, for 73 episodes and 8 seasons.

The series narrates the adventures of many characters and it takes place in an imaginary world composed of two continents, named Westeros and Essos. The largest and most civilized city of Westeros is the capital city King’s Landing, where the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms is located. The fight for the throne leads the most powerful noble families to clash or ally with each other in numerous political intrigues and plots.
