Rosa Parks on $20 Dollar Bill

Nationwide – Civil rights icon, Rosa Parks, is now in the finals in a grassroots campaign to put a woman on the $20 bill by the year 2020. She is one of four women that will be chosen. The other finalists are Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt and Wilma Mankiller.

Here are good reasons why Rosa Parks should be chosen:

1) Everybody Loves Her: It’s true! Have you ever met someone who didn’t like Rosa Parks? She is a civil rights icon who is credited with creating change for African Americans who faced discrimination and racism, but people of all races like her. Even back in 1955 when she refused to change her seat on that bus, people of all nationalities supported her for being heroic.

2) America Needs to Prove It’s Diversity: America now has a very diverse population and even a Black president, so why not prove that you are really a diverse country by putting, not just a woman’s face on the country’s currency, but a Black woman’s face? It would be a huge milestone, and America would be the first first-world country to do it!

3) It Would Bring Attention to Women’s Rights: There is no better way to bring attention to the issue of women’s rights than to put a woman on the $20 dollar bill — or any bill for that matter. Can you imagine how much this will do for women’s self-esteem, self-worth and self-pride? It also would be a huge motivation to tackle other major injustices that women face!

4) She Already Has Her Own Bowtie: That’s right! The final reason why Rosa Parks deserves the winning spot is… she already has her own bowtie on BlackHistoryBowties.com. Have you seen it already? It looks amazing, and her face would look even more amazing on the new $20 bill!
