Today is the day in history in which Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the bus to give up her seat for a white passenger. This significant individual protest sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Rosa Parks has been called the "Mother of the Modern-Day Civil Rights Movement".
Remember what Rosa Parks represented and the civil liberties and equality she fought for. Remember the strength she had as an individual to spark a civil rights movement that changed society for the better.
