The Casket of Civil Rights Icon Rosa Parks is Carried out of the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol Building

The casket of civil rights icon Rosa Parks is carried out of the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol building after being honored in a well attended ceremony. Parks' refusal to give up her seat on a Montgomery bus to a white man helped break racial segregation in America. Her quiet protest 50 years ago led to a revolt against the segregation of whites and blacks. Parks died at her home in Detroit at age 92. | Location: WASHINGTON, Dist. of Columbia, United States.
