In this Saturday, Dec. 1, 2001, file photo, civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks holds the hand of a well-wisher at a ceremony honoring the 46th anniversary of her arrest for civil disobedience, at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich. Beginning Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2015, at the Library of Congress, researchers and the public will have full access to Parks’ archive of letters, writings, personal notes and photographs for the first time.

Nice to read that Alabama is memorializing Rosa Parks, 64 years after she refused to give up her seat to a white man, sparking the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Now I could be wrong, and it wasn’t said in the story, but was this the first statue in Mrs. Parks’ honor? That would be a shame. Anywho, I’m glad the state is honoring her and reminding everyone there and abroad about her courageous act.
