Rosa Parks dies at 92

Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks, the woman known as the “mother of the civil rights movement,” died last night at age 92.

In 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat, on a city bus in Montgomery, Ala., to a white passenger. This event has become a symbol of the civil rights movement, and lead to the 1956 US Supreme Court ruling making segregation illegal on the city’s bus system.

Rest in peace Mrs. Parks.
