Rosa Parks

"The First Lady of Civil Rights", Rosa Louise McCauley Parks died on October 24, 2005 in Detroit, Michigan. By sitting down December 1, 1955 on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, Rosa Parks stood up for the dignity and civil rights of every African American in the United States.

Her very patriotic and brave act was the stimulus that helped strengthen the Montgomery Bus Boycott and civil rights demonstrations around the country.  Parks actions became a symbol of support against the crude racial discrimination that was prevalent in the south and many parts of the country. Her arrest for refusing the bus drivers demand to give up her seat on the bus to a white person initiated a cause for her support until this day.  Parks at the time was secretary of the Montgomery Chapter of the NAACP, but she acted that day on her own.  Rosa Parks was born on February 4, 1913 in Tuskegee, Alabama.
