Death Of An Icon

Rosa Parks, who famously humanized the Civil Rights movement when, riding on a Montgomery, AL, city bus Dec. 1, 1955, refused to give up her seat for a white man, has died.
She recently said,
"I am leaving this legacy to all of you ... to bring peace, justice, equality, love and a fulfillment of what our lives should be. Without vision, the people will perish, and without courage and inspiration, dreams will die -- the dream of freedom and peace."
