There's no substitute for guts --Bear Bryant
Rosa Parks Died Tonight
Rosa Parks, civil rights heroine, is dead
When Rosa Parks refused to get up, an entire race of people began to stand up for their rights as human beings.
It was a simple act that took extraordinary courage in Montgomery, Ala., in 1955. It was a place where black people had no rights white people had to respect. It was a time when racial discrimination was so common, many blacks never questioned it.
