R.I.P Rosa Parks: 92

Just saw it on the news, Rosa Parks dead at the age of 92.


Rest In Peace Ms. Parks.


ETA: Article just up on Yahoo News:
Civil Rights Pioneer Rosa Park Dies At 92

Quote:
DETROIT - Rosa Lee Parks, whose refusal to give up her bus seat to a white man sparked the modern civil rights movement, died Monday. She was 92.

Mrs. Parks died at her home of natural causes, said Karen Morgan, a spokeswoman for U.S. Rep. John Conyers (news, bio, voting record), D-Mich.

Mrs. Parks was 42 when she committed an act of defiance in 1955 that was to change the course of American history and earn her the title "mother of the civil rights movement."
