Daily Kos: Civil Rights Pioneer Rosa Parks Dead At 92

Daily Kos Proudtobeliberal diary brings this sad news: "Civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks has died, Local 4 has learned.

Parks, 92, reportedly died around 7 p.m. Monday, a city source said.

Parks' refusal to give up her bus seat to a white man in Montgomery, Ala., in 1955 landed her in jail and sparked a bus boycott that is considered the start of the modern civil rights movement."
