"Ah ha hush that fuss, Everybody move to the back of the bus"

On this day in 1913 Rosa Parks was born in Tuskegee, Alabama. She would go on to know as the "Mother of the modern-day civil rights movement" for here role in the bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama. As the story goes, Parks refused to give her seat up to a white passenger and was arrested and taken to jail for her actions. This caused a year long boycott known as the Montgomery Bus Boycott which was lead by a young baptist minister named Martin Luther King Jr.
