"Rosa Parks. She took a stand by staying seated. She was an ordinary woman who in just a moment did an extraordinary thing!"

Did you know Rosa Parks boarded a public bus in Montgomery, Alabama, on December 1, 1955? She did not give up her seat to a white male, even though the law stated she must do so. Parks was arrested and found guilty. This led to the Montgomery Bus Boycott which lasted 381 days. One of the leaders of the boycott was Martin Luther King, Jr. On November 13, 1956, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled segregation on public buses was illegal. On December 21, the bus boycott in Montgomery ended. Read about Rosa Parks.

Your Question


Q: What does ratify mean when people say, "The Constitution was ratified?" (Jill from Arizona)

A: Ratify means approve. Therefore, when people say "the Constitution was ratified" what it means is the Constitution was approved. After the Founding Fathers drafted the Constitution of the United States in the summer of 1787, three-fourth of the states had to ratify (or approve) the Constitution for it go into effect. That meant 9 out of the 13 states had to ratify it. On July 2, 1788, New Hampshire was the ninth state to do so, and in 1789, the Constitution became the basis of the government of the United States of America. Read a book about the Constitution.
