Happy Birthday Rosa Parks

On this day in history, February 4, 1913, civil rights activist Rosa Parks was born in Tuskegee, Alabama. She is best known for not giving up her seat to a white passenger on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama, on December 1, 1955.

Rosa Parks’s firm decision led to the Montgomery Bus Boycott, organized by Jo Ann Robinson, president of the WPC organization at the time. The boycott lasted over a year and eventually ended with a Supreme Court ruling that declared segregation on public transit systems unconstitutional.
Happy Birthday Rosa!
