Rosa Parks, civil rights heroine, is dead

Monday, October 24, 2005


When Rosa Parks refused to get up, an entire race of people began to stand up for their rights as human beings.

It was a simple act that took extraordinary courage in Montgomery, Ala., in 1955. It was a place where black people had no rights white people had to respect. It was a time when racial discrimination was so common, many blacks never questioned it.

At least not out loud.

is now restored and on display in Detroit. (Her home town, I think.)

If I mention that she was unarmed at the time, is that trolling, mark? Happy

She was armed and dangerous.
by Dan McC / October 25, 2005 4:52 AM PDT

She was a danger to those who would not treat all people with respect for their rights regardless of what group each belonged to.

It's a message that rings to this day.

She moved to Detroit after she could no longer secure employment because of her activism.
