Rosa Parks Day

(KYTX) - Happy birthday to Rosa Parks! She would have turned 100 years old if she were still alive today.

The late civil rights activist was arrested for refusing to give up her seat at the front of a bus to a white man in 1955.

The arrest sparked a yearlong boycott of the Montgomery, Alabama, transit system.

The U.S. Post Office is honoring Rosa Parks by making a "Forever" stamp.
