Civic & Community Leadership

Rosa Parks became an icon of the modern Civil Rights movement for refusing to give up her Montgomery, Alabama, bus seat to a white passenger in December 1955. That defiant act fueled the movement that ended legal segregation in America.Because her notoriety made her unemployable in the South. Parks moved to Detroit in 1957. Involved in social causes throughout her life, Parks received the Presidential Medal of Freedom and a Congressional Gold Medal. She was the first woman in American history to lie in honor at the U.S. Capitol.
