Rosa Parks makes history again – Historic Statue in Statuary Hall
Affectionately known as “The Mother” of the modern Civil Rights era, Mrs. Rosa Parks now sits in a place reserved for famous public servants. Her 9 foot statue is on display in the Capitol Rotunda; Statuary Hall. Her act of courage is historic and even today, some continue to attempt to marginalize or block a citizens right to vote, Mrs. Parks is a model of what determination can accomplish.
Further, some claimed the day Mrs. Parks was recognized would never happen, yet like the right to vote itself, determination and persistence is the key and makes you wonder………why some are so adamant in attempting to block what is otherwise a fundamental right for those who are Americans?
