Rosa Parks statue unveiled in DC's Statuary Hall2/28/2013
Nearly six decades after civil rights activist Rosa Parks fought for her right to a good seat on a bus, she's won a place alongside some of the most acclaimed company in America's history — in National Statuary Hall in Washington, D.C. Parks is the first African-American woman to be honored with a full-length statue there. (Trivia fact: Abolitionist Sojourner Truth is represented with a bust.) The unveiling was jointly overseen by President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner — maybe the best example of bipartisanship we've seen in years. [Source]
