The stamp is a celebration of the work that Rosa Parks did for the civil rights movement. She will always be remembered for the stand she took on the bus in Montgomery, Alabama.
She was brave and courageous. The actual bus that Rosa Parks was on is stationed in Dearborn, MI.
We will never forget that faithful day in 1955 when Rosa Parks refused to go to the back of the bus because of the color of her skin.
The unveiling of the stamp is a tremendous honor for a great African-American woman, and she will forever reign in our hearts for the great work she did that changed the world.
Senator Debbie Stabenow praised the efforts of Rosa Parks, stating that she just wanted to take a seat on the bus, rest and be respected.
Some other African Americans honored with a stamp include: Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Anna Julia Cooper.
