Montgomery, Alabama unveils a statue dedication to the one and only Rosa Parks 64 years after she was arrested for violating segregated laws as she refused to give her seat to a white passenger. Parks was a civil rights pioneer and one of my personal favorites. Downtown Montgomery now houses a bronze life-size statue in honor of Parks. Montgomery, AL is where most of the civil rights movement including the Bus Boycott took place so this is the perfect spot to recognize Parks.
In my opinion., this statue was a long time coming and I feel that Parks is MORE deserving and this is something that represents her and her movement to help showcase what she has done to help us AFRICAN AMERICANS. Parks worked alongside Dr. Martin Luther King and for that I'll forever be grateful for the chances they took for me to be able to do what I do. I also attend the illustrious HBCU Alabama State University which is in Montgomery, AL so I'm even more appreciative and excited to visit the statue myself.
