Today, known as the “First Lady of the Civil Rights Movement”, Mrs. Rosa Parks would have been 92 years old.
Civil rights activist Rosa Parks was born on February 4, 1913, in Tuskegee, Alabama. Her refusal to surrender her seat to a white passenger on a Montgomery, Alabama bus spurred a city-wide boycott. The city of Montgomery had no choice but to lift the law requiring segregation on public buses. Rosa Parks received many accolades during her lifetime, including the NAACP’s highest award.
Happy birthday Mama Parks! Thank you for all you’ve done! #Respect
