Start out by giving the title, your name, and the date for the first slide. On the second slide, you should provide background information about Rosa Parks, before the civil rights movement. This would include her date of birth, where she was born, what her family/home life was like, etc. Next, you should provide a quick overview of what the civil rights movement was, just to have some information about the events and who was involved. For the next couple slides you can give information about her contributions to the civil rights movement, like the bus boycott. List the awards she received and maybe some quotes she is remembered for. The last slide should be your sources (where you got all the info from). Make sure you include photos throughout the presentation and make the PowerPoint look clean and simple. Good luck!
