"My Story" hardcover book, hand-signed on the title page by Rosa Parks (D. 2005).

Rosa Parks was an African American civil rights activist who played a pivotal role in the civil rights movement in the United States. She was born on February 4, 1913, in Tuskegee, Alabama, and passed away on October 24, 2005, in Detroit, Michigan.

Rosa Parks became an iconic figure in American history for her brave act of resistance on December 1, 1955. On that day, she refused to give up her seat to a white person on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama, as was required by the city's segregation laws. Her act of civil disobedience led to her arrest and sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott, a significant event in the civil rights movement.

The Montgomery Bus Boycott was a coordinated effort by the African American community in Montgomery to boycott the city's public buses in protest of segregation. The boycott lasted for 381 days and was a nonviolent resistance against racial segregation on public transportation. The movement was organized by leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and it brought national attention to the civil rights struggle.

Rosa Parks' courageous stand and the ensuing boycott were instrumental in challenging segregation and inspiring the broader civil rights movement. Her actions and the collective efforts of countless others ultimately led to the desegregation of public transportation in Montgomery and set the stage for further civil rights advancements.

Rosa Parks' legacy extends far beyond the Montgomery Bus Boycott. She continued to be involved in civil rights activism throughout her life, advocating for racial equality and social justice. Her determination, courage, and perseverance in the face of adversity have made her a symbol of the fight for civil rights and an inspiration to generations of people striving for equality and justice.
