Remembering Rosa Parks

START

Rosa Parks was a legendary figure in the American Civil Rights Movement. Her critical role in the Montgomery Bus Boycott made her a national symbol of resistance and her actions led to the overall success of not only the integration of the bus systems across the country, but the passing of the Civil Rights Act in 1964. Her monumental efforts were recognized when she won a Congressional Gold Medal in 1999. In honor of Black History Month, CR remembers some of Parks’ most moving words.
