Celebrate the life and legacy of Rosa Parks with this special collection from PBS. While Parks may not be the first African American to challenge the status quo of segregation laws in the south, her quiet yet courageous act of protest in 1955 earned her the nickname "Mother of the Freedom Movement." This collection features web-exclusive features from trusted public media partners that will connect you directly to a partner website or allow you to watch a preview below. Get started now. Be inspired by the legacy of Rosa Parks.
