Conversations with Charlie - Rosa Parks

4 years ago

While dragging information out of Charlie about school last week this was the highlight of our conversation.

Mommy – so what outclass did you have today?

Charlie – library.

Mommy – so what did Ms. Benjamin have y’all do in library today?

Charlie – I got paired up with a nice girl named Jennifer. We have to do a report on Rosa Parks for African American history month.

Mommy – that’s cool.  Were you assigned a famous African American person?

Charlie – no, Jennifer and I picked her from a list.

Mommy – do you know why Rosa Parks is famous?

Charlie – didn’t she write the Junie B Jones books?
