Rosa Parks Lives in Memory. [Oct. 24th, 2005|08:26 pm]
[Tags|, ]

Rosa Parks passed away today.

"The only tired I was, was tired of giving in."

"I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear."

"Memories of our lives, of our works and our deeds will continue in others."

Rosa Parks
92 years of age.

Her action provided momentum for Civil Rights.

John Conyers speaks to WXYZ Channel 7, talking of plans on the horizon for a holiday in her honor.

Yeah, some people don't get it.

Like, Apple/Mac uses her in the "Think Different" campaign.

She didn't think any different from every black person in her day. She did what everyone wanted to do. That's a big difference.

It seems more like a Nike ad than a Mac ad.
