Rosa Parks has passed away
Aged 92

On the first of December 1955 a woman refused to move to the back of the bus to make room for whites..she was arrested and it lit the fire under the already steaming civil rights movement with the Montgomery Bus Boycott...Tired of being treated like a second class citizen and already involved with the NAACP, Rosa Parks became a beautiful symbol of non-violent resistance...
Rosa Parks: She was Tired . . . Sick and Tired
The civil rights movement has been applauded as one of the most successful nonviolent movements in history. People believed in their rights so much so that they were willing to risk their livelihood and their very lives for the cause of equality and justice.

I personally love the back of the bus, but everybody has the right to sit anywhere they please.
