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
1913-2005
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.
