Rosa is gone.


ROSA PARKS "MOTHER OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT"
Feb. 4, 1913 - October 24, 2005

December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus to a white passenger. She was tired and tired of injustice.

By December 5th, her act of protest and subsequent arrest sparked the bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama. It lasted 381 days and by the end, the Supreme Court ruled that segregation on transportation was unconsitutional.

One weary woman with the courage of her convictions changed the world.

Namaste, Rosa. We bow to your spirit.

Thank you.

Goodbye Rosa.
Your simple act of sitting down caused thousands to stand up.
