A Salute to Rosa Parks (1913-2005)
On December 1, 1955 Rosa Parks was arrested in Montgomery, Alabama after refusing to give up her seat to a white man while riding on a segregated bus.

Rosa Parks’ courageous act drew national attention to simple truths: A public transit system paid for by all must benefit all, and civil rights must be protected for all.
