Rosa Parks

Biography

American activist known as "the mother of the civil rights movement" due to her sparking of the Montgomery bus boycott, leading to a 12/21/1956 Supreme Court order outlawing discriminatory practices on Montgomery busses. It was on 12/01/1955 that the soft-spoken 42-year old seamstress left work to catch the bus home. When the bus became loaded the driver told her to give her seat to a white man - and she refused - almost single-handedly starting the modern civil rights movement. She said, "I had been pushed as far as I could stand to be pushed. I had decided that I would have to know once and for all what rights I had as a human being and a citizen."

She wrote her autobiography with Jim Haskins, "The Montgomery Story," 1958.

at age 92, she brought suit against rap duo OutKast over the use of her name in their 1998 song, "Rosa Parks." She settled in April 2005 and the group will produce a tribute CD to her.

The awe-inspiring woman died in Detroit, MI on October 24, 2005; she was 92 years old.
