Rosa Parks Day is celebrated to honor the civil rights activist, who is known for refusing to give up her seat to a white man in Montgomery, Alabama in 1955. In some states the Day is observed on Ms. Parks’ birthday, February 4th. Other states honor her legacy on December 1st, the day she was arrested. Today would have been Rosa Parks’ 104th birthday.
