On December 1, 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama, Parks, age 42, refused to obey bus driver ‘s order that she give up her seat to make room for a white passenger.
A few months back Chanh took this photo of the actual bus through the window. I spent a considerable amount of time just sitting on the bus and looking around. There was something inspiring about it even though it just a bus like any other. Looking at the first seat and noticing how wore out it was compared to every other. Thinking about how many people had sat there before me and had felt something. It had me a little speechless.
