It’s a story that every child learns in school. Rosa Parks and the bus. But this poster is more than a history lesson. The centerpiece is an iconic photo from Ebony Magazine that captures the power and vitality of the 42-year-old woman who refused to give up her seat so that a white man could sit there. The poster is 24 x 36 inches and features a short bio and a quote in which Ms. Parks speaks of the events of that fateful day.
"People alwasy say that I didn't give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn't true. I was not tired physically, or no more tired than I usually was at the end of a working day. I was not old, although some people have an image of me being old then. I was forty-two. The only tired I was, was tired of giving in."
