Rosa Parks Day


It's hard to believe that it was only just a little over 60 years ago, that a woman who refused to sit at the back of the bus would be the face of a boycott movement that would be part of making history. This woman labeled as the 'Mother of the movement' who we now know to be Rosa Parks helped mark a time in history that would eventually spark change around the world. On December 1st, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama exactly 65 years ago, "Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing a bus driver's instructions to give up her seat to a white passenger. She later recalled that her refusal wasn't because she was physically tired, but that she was tired of giving in." biography.com
