Rosa Parks
- The first lady of the civil rights as stated by the US Congress, as well as, the Mother of the freedom movement.
- By her attitude on a bus in 1955, she called the attention of the public eye to civil rights issues in a very divided and troubled US society before many other social rights issues in that country.
