ROSA PARKS SMILES AT MEDAL CEREMONY ON CAPITOL HILL

Original caption: WAS03:CONGRESS-PARKS:WASHINGTON,15JUN99 - Rosa 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, smiles during a ceremony, held to present her with the Congressional Gold Medal, June 15. Parks' solitary act of defiance on December 1, 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama, resulted in her arrest and set off an extraordinary set of events resulting in the eventual collapse of institutionalized segregation in the American South. hb/Photo by William Philpott REUTERS
