Rosa Parks  Modern Day Heroine (DVD) -

Rosa Parks Modern Day Heroine DVD

On December 1, 1955, a black seamstress named Rosa Parks became "The Mother of the Civil Rights Movement", by refusing to give up a seat on a municipal bus to a white man. This act provided the impetus for the Montgomery bus boycott. This successful protest, which lasted just over a year, marked the emergence of Martin Luther King, Jr., to national prominence as a civil-rights leader and fixed the model for future nonviolent movement actions. In 1957, Parks moved to Detroit, where she remained active in the civil-rights movement. She was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, Congress's highest honor, in 1999.
