In Alabama, civil rights leader Rosa Parks was honored this weekend with a new statue in downtown Montgomery. Sixty-four years ago, on December 1, 1955, Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a white man and move to the back of the bus. Sunday also marked the second annual Rosa Parks Day in Alabama. The Alabama state Legislature approved the holiday last year.
