American civil rights activist Rosa Parks, whose refusal to give up her seat for a white man was the catalyst for the Montgomery bus boycott

Rosa Parks would have celebrated her 100th birthday on February 4, 1913. Her defiant act of courage advanced the civil right movement. It is ironic that after the end of the 381-day bus boycott spurred by her arrest in Montgomery, Alabama, Ms. Parks was not able to find employment there. So she and her husband moved to Detroit, and Ms. Parks worked for Congressman John Conyers. She is someone who, as Maya Angelous says, "had greatness thrust upon her." Happy #blackhistorymonth!
