Today marks the 55th anniversary of the day Rosa Parks, civil rights activist, refused to give up her seat on a segregated bus.

On December 1, 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama, Parks, age 42, refused to an order that she give up her seat for a white passenger. Her action was not the first of its kind. But Parks' action of civil disobedience sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott which coincided with the Civil Rights Movement.

I wonder who's job it is to create these google tags...
