Rosa Parks, one of the most famous figures of the American Civl Rights Movement, died Monday evening at 92 years of age.
We all know her from her refusal to sit in the back of the bus in 1955. That helped spark what has become known as the Civil Rights Movement. The Montgomery bus boycott was started and for over a year the black citizens didn’t use the bus system in Montgomery, Alabama. The boycott ended when the Supreme Court ruled the bus segregation as unconstitutional.
