December 1st, 2019 marked the second annual Rosa Parks Day in Montgomery, Alabama!
This year however, was a little more special because Rosa Parks was honored with her very own statue! The day marked 64 years since Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat.
CNN reported that the event in dedication to Rosa Parks took place Sunday afternoon.
Montgomery’s mayor, Steven Reed who is also the city’s first African American mayor stated, “Today, on the second official Rosa Parks Day, we honor a seamstress and a servant, one whose courage ran counter to her physical stature. She was a consummate contributor to equality and did so with a quiet humility that is an example for all of us.”
