Alabama unveils statue of civil rights icon Rosa Parks

A new statue of civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks was dedicated in Alabama’s capital city on Sunday, the 64th anniversary of her historic refusal to give up her seat on a public bus to a white man. Her act led to the Montgomery Bus Boycott, spearheaded by Martin Luther King, Jr., and later the Supreme Court’s ruling that segregation on buses was unconstitutional as it violated the 14th Amendment.

Rosa Parks is an icon but Claudette Colvin is the real pioneer and braved the wrath. Rosa Parks sit in was staged.
