The Birth of Rosa Parks
(1955 booking photo of Rosa Parks in Montgomery, Alabama)
On this day in 1913, Rosa Parks, aka "The Mother of The Civil Rights Movement," was born. Her single effort of resistance in 1955, spawned the movement that would change the United States of America forever and we are eternally grateful.
If one little woman from the segregated Tuskegee, Alabama south could change a nation, imagine what kind of greatness we are all capable of.
The Cocoa Lounge celebrates the life and work of Rosa Parks today. Happy Birthday!
