ROSA PARKS WITH CLINTON AT MEDAL CEREMONY ON CAPITOL HILL

Original caption: WAS04:CONGRESS-PARKS:WASHINGTON,15JUN99 - President Bill Clinton and civil rights hero Rosa Parks look at her Congressional Gold Medal award, June 15 during a ceremony on Capitol Hill. Parks, the black seamstress who pioneered the struggle for civil rights in America in the 1950s by refusing to give up her seat on a bus to a white man, was presented with the award for her act of defiance, which set off a series of events resulting in the eventual collapse of institutionalized segregation in the American South. hb/Photo by William Philpott REUTERS
