There is a wonderful CNN article to read on Rosa Parks today, the anniversary of her famous ride at the front of a Montgomery, Ala. bus. I like this article because it tells the true history of this great social advocate. She planned her move, it was not something that just happened one day, as many of us were taught in our white history classes. She had planned to do this, and when Emmett Till was murdered in Mississippi, this was the spark that ignited her decision. The time was now. What a wonderful, brave civil rights hero. We must demand that history books tell the truth. This is just one more example of white privilege.
Here's the article. It's Time To Free Rosa Parks From the Bus!
