Rosa Parks

Honoring her lifelong dedication to resistance on what would have been her 100th birthday.

Born on Feb. 4, 1913, today would have been Rosa Parks’ 100th birthday. On Dec. 1, 1955, Parks refused to give up her seat to a white passenger on a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Her act of resistance led to a 13-month boycott of the Montgomery bus system that sparked the Civil Rights Movement.

Parks is famous for this single, albeit enormously significant, action, but at the expense that her lifelong dedication to resistance is oft overlooked. Parks was a dedicated civil rights activist involved with the movement long before and after her historic action on the Montgomery bus.

Watch this feature about her life put out today by Democracy Now in time for her 100th birthday to learn more about the rich, lifelong history of resistance that defined who Rosa Parks actually was.

You'll find surely a whole lot of details like that to take into consideration. Which is an incredible point to bring up. I present the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly one can find questions like the one you bring up where essentially the most significant thing might be working in honest superior faith. I don?t know if perfect practices have emerged around points like that, but I'm certain that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls really feel the impact of just a moment's pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
