It is late in the day (Monday) but before it is over, Happy Birthday Rosa Parks! Known as “the first lady of civil rights”, she would have been 100 today. Most famous for not getting up from her seat on the bus for a white man and setting off the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955. Contrary to popular belief, she was not sitting in the front of the bus, but in the “colored section” when the driver told her to get up.
The US Postal Service issued a Rosa Parks forever stamp today.
Her favorite dessert was said to be Sweet Potato Pie.
