Rosa Parks’s Bus

I have blogged about Rosa Parks before (see here and here, for example), but I did not know that the actual city bus in which she was arrested on December 1, 1955 for refusing to give up her seat to a white man–a brave act of defiance that ended up changing the entire world–still exists. It was restored and brought back to life by the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan, going from a discarded relic in a lonesome Alabama field (see below) to one of the most popular artifacts in that museum’s collection. Via The Henry Ford (THF), more details are available here.
