Rosa Parks, dead at 92

Parks' moment in history began in December 1955 when she refused to give up her seat on a bus to a white man in Montgomery, Alabama.

Her arrest triggered a 381-day boycott of the bus system by blacks that was organized by a 26-year-old Baptist minister, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

Goodbye to a true hero.

Rest In Piece, Rosa Parks.

It's really too bad that while her action helped spark an end to legal segregation, it's still for all intents and purposes enforced throughout the country with devestating results.
