Rosa Parks Statue, Paris

Posted in USA History Abroad at 6:48 am by Kendal

There is one city in the world that stands out as not only the capital of its country but as an important international capital.  Paris is full of inspiring statues and in July 2006 they added 2 new statues to the city,  revealing a statue to Thomas Jefferson and to Rosa Parks.

Rosa Parks is considered one of the most amazing women of modern history, for refusing to give up her seat to a white man on the bus drivers order.  Looking back on this situation would it not have been nice for the white man to stand up for Ms. Parks.
