Wikipedia, Feb. 4, 2014 (Rosa Louise McCauley Parks; born February 4, 1913 in Tuskegee, Alabama; died October 24, 2005 in Detroit; civil rights activist, whom the United States Congress called "the first lady of civil rights" and "the mother of the freedom movement". On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, Parks refused to obey bus driver James F. Blake's order to give up her seat in the colored section to a white passenger, after the white section was filled. Parks' act of defiance and the Montgomery Bus Boycott became important symbols of the modern Civil Rights Movement. She became an international icon of resistance to racial segregation)
