Comments: 2  | Leave A Comment

Parks’ legacy is told in her autobiography, Rosa Parks: My Story. Since her passing, a host of streets, buildings, schools and events have been named in her honor. In addition, the bus that sparked the controversial event is on display at the Henry Ford Museum.

Now, the U.S. Postal Service has issued a Rosa Parks stamp on the 100th birthday of the civil rights’ legend. The stamp, which was created by Art Director Derry Noyes and stamp artist Thomas Blackshear II, is part of the Civil Rights series, which will include the March on Washington and the Emancipation Proclamation. The value is equivalent to first-class postage.
