Rosa parks tribute

City buses honor Rosa Parks with a powerful tribute.

On December 1st 1955, Rosa Parks was arrested after she refused to give her seat at the front of the bus to a white man in Montgomery, AL. In the following days, a massive boycott was organized that lasted over a year, and culminated in a Supreme Court ruling that prohibited segregation on public transportation. A huge win for Civil Rights activists.

To commemorate her role in civil rights history, the Milwaukee County Transit System reserved a seat on all city buses in her name. Each seat has a poster featuring the Civil Rights icon, a description of her heroic actions, and a rose.

See the video MCTS made to mark the occasion.
