It was announced last week that Rosa Parks is set to become the 1st Black Woman with a statue on Capitol Hill. Known as The Mother Of The Civil Rights Movement, Rosa Parks passed away in 2005, but her legacy lives on.
The Washington Natural Cathedral unveiled a statue celebrating her contribution to history last year and on February 4th,2013, which would have been her 100th birthday, the U.S. postage stamp will unveil a stamp with her image.
#salute Mrs. Parks!
