{Dear Miss Rosa…}

“…the only tired I was, was tired of giving in.”

Original Caption: 12/21/1956-Montgomery, AL: Rosa Parks, 43, sits in the front of a city bus here Dec. 21 as a Supreme Court ruling which banned segregation on the city's public transit vehicles took effect. Mrs. Parks' arrest on Dec. 1, 1955, for sitting in a bus forward of white passengers, touched off the boycott of Montgomery Negroes against the city's bus lines.

…may I sit next to you?
