Rosa Parks would have celebrated her 100th birthday on February 4, 1913. Her defiant act of courage advanced the civil right movement. It is ironic that after the end of the 381-day bus boycott spurred by her arrest in Montgomery, Alabama, Ms. Parks was not able to find employment there. So she and her husband moved to Detroit, and Ms. Parks worked for Congressman John Conyers. She is someone who, as Maya Angelous says, "had greatness thrust upon her." Happy #blackhistorymonth! Celebrate…

Hampton University and Mrs. Rosa Parks    During the period of the boycott and following, Mrs. Parks and her family experienced constant harassment. She and her husband were fired from their jobs and unable to secure other employment. As a result, they returned to her home in Detroit. A mere nine months after the boycott officially ended on December 20, 1956, Mrs. Parks (mother of the Civil Rights Movement) was offered and accepted employment at Hampton University.

Did Rosa Parks Have a Happy Marriage with Her Husband Raymond?

Ida B. Wells-Barnett: Long before Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus, a young school teacher refused to move from the Ladies Car on the train on the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad. When she was removed from the train, she sued and won proving that a woman of color could make her voice heard. Although the decision was later over-turned, Ida B. Wells-Barnett kept raising her voice, educating Americans and Europeans about the horrors of lynching, and other social injustices.
