MONTGOMERY, Ala. (CNN) – 64 years ago today, Rosa Parks was arrested after she refused to give up her seat on the bus for a white man.
A moment that would go down in history.
A moment that would make her one of the major symbols of the Civil Rights Movement.
Now — a statue of her stands in downtown Montgomery.
It was just unveiled Sunday.
Thirty feet from the spot where she’s believed to have boarded the bus.
Her arrest prompted a 381-day boycott of the Montgomery bus system, organized by the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Parks died in 2005.
She was 92-years-old.
