Read the excerpt from Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice by Phillip Hoose, and then answer the question.

Which is the best paraphrase of the excerpt?

Read the excerpt from Claudette Colvin:Twice Toward Justice by Phillip Hoose, and then read the paraphrase of it.


Colvin recalled that, “After the other students got up, there were three empty seats in my row, but that white woman still wouldn't sit down—not even across the aisle from me. That was the whole point of the segregation rules–it was all symbolic–blacks had to be behind whites. If she sat down in the same row as me, it meant I was as good as her.”


Colvin explained that the other students got up, but she did not. As a result, someone refused to sit down. Segregation rules meant that Colvin had to be behind white passengers, not in the same row. If they sat in the same row, it would mean that all people were equal.

FLORENCE GRIFFITH-JOYNER: Before I actually started competing in track and field we used to race in the neighborhood where I grew up in south-central Los Angeles. I said, "Wow. Wouldn't that be nice for me to be able to feel this good about something I love so much for the rest of my life?" So I chose, at a very early age, to continue running throughout my entire life. And again, it's so important that whatever you do in life, that you enjoy it.
