Metro Honors Rosa Parks with Special Bus Posters on 50th Anniversary of Her Civil Rights Protest

It wasn't a bus that started it all but a bus was certainly the setting. It is fitting, then, that today, on the 50th anniversary of Rosa Parks' refusal to surrender her bus seat to a white male passenger, Metro salutes her by placing beautiful art posters commemorating the event on all buses as a reminder of who she was and what she gave us. Parks died Oct. 24 at the age of 92.
