After 381 days, the city ordinance was finally overturned.
Soon, millions of other across the country joined the Civil Rights Movement and helped secure the freedom and equality that is every American’s birthright.
Today, our nation is better, our country more just and our people more united, because of the bravery of Rosa Parks.
Rosa Parks’ legacy continues to inspire our citizens to pursue a better tomorrow, and to build a country where every American child,
no matter their skin color, can live without fear, dream without limits, and take their rightful place in the great story of our nation.
Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.
