Rosa Parks — American Activist born on February 04, 1913, died on October 24, 2005

Rosa Louise McCauley Parks was an African-American Civil Rights activist, whom the United States Congress called "the first lady of civil rights" and "the mother of the freedom movement". Her birthday, February 4, and the day she was arrested, December 1, have both become Rosa Parks Day, commemorated in both California and Ohio... (wikipedia)

I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.
Racism is still with us. But it is up to us to prepare our children for what they have to meet, and, hopefully, we shall overcome.
