This made me a little sad to hear that she had died, may she rest in peace. U.S. civil rights icon Rosa Parks dies at 92
things we've learned from the movies - - when they're alone, all foreigners prefer to speak English to each other....
I know it's sad. She lived a long life though. Wonderful role model.

How many people here now the real story about her though ?Most people think she sat in the "white section" (where all the white people sit) of the bus ... in reality she thuoght in the back where the black ppl sit, not in the frontWhen they did a re-enactment (to get a picture) they just put her in the front with the white people
Still searching ...
Parks boarded the Cleveland Avenue bus on December 1, 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama after a day at work. She was sitting in the 'colored' section of the bus. The 'colored' section of the buses in Montgomery was not fixed in size, but determined by the placement of a movable sign. The driver could move the sign, or even remove it altogether. Mrs Parks initially sat behind the sign, but refused to move when the driver, James Blake, moved it behind her. Blake demanded that four blacks give up their seats in the middle section so a lone white man could sit. Three of them complied. When recalling the incident for Eyes on the Prize, a 1987 public television series on the civil rights movement, Parks said, " When he saw me still sitting, he asked if I was going to stand up and I said, 'No, I'm not'. And he said, 'Well, if you don't stand up, I'm going to have to call the police and have you arrested.' I said, 'You may do that.' "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosa_Parks
