This video celebrates the achievement of one woman's bold action of standing up by remaining seated. Rosa Parks, a 42 year old working woman on Dec. 1, 1955, was arrested for not moving from her seat on a public bus for a white man. One year and one day later, after a bus boycott led by the SCLC and Dr. MLK, public transportation laws were changed and blacks received equal rights while riding on public transportation. It was a great feat for African Americans, and it all started with Rosa Parks. This is a thank you to the "Mother of the Civil Rights Movement."
