DALLAS — Sixty years ago today, Rosa Parks took an iconic stand against racial inequality.

On Dec. 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to sit on the back of a bus just because she was black. Her defiance was a pivotal point in the civil rights movement.

Today, Americans of every race who are in favor of equality are remembering the woman who became a symbol of the struggle.

The Dallas Dart honored and celebrated her courage by “symbolically reserving her a front row seat on each DART bus.”
