57 Years Since Rosa Parks’ Arrest

On December 1st, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama—57 years ago today—an African-American civil rights activist named Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat to a white passenger and was arrested for civil disobedience. Though she did not know it at the time, her act of defiance became a catalyst to the 381-day Montgomery Bus Boycott and a prominent symbol for the modern Civil Rights Movement.

Today, there are dozens of streets, highways, parks, statues, and even municipal transit centers and stations dedicated in Rosa Parks’ honor around the United States.
