Little Known Black History Fact: Rosa Parks Statue

Comments: 5  | Leave A Comment

Rosa Parks received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Springarn Medal, the Congressional Gold Medal and she is the first woman to lie in state at Capitol Hill’s rotunda.

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.

This year, the U.S. Postal Service 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.

  1. I think everything published was very reasonable. However, what about this?

    what if you typed a catchier title? I ain’t saying your information isn’t solid., but what if
    you added a title that makes people want more? I mean Little Known
    Black History Fact: Rosa Parks Statue | Black America Web is
    a little boring. You could look at Yahoo’s
    front page and watch how they create post headlines to get
    viewers interested. You might try adding a
    video or a related picture or two to get readers excited about everything’ve written.

    In my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit
    more interesting.
