Miami, Fla. (December 1, 2020) –
State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle and our entire SAO team celebrate December 1st as Rosa Parks Day. On this day in history, December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks, “The First Lady of Civil Rights”, refused to give up her bus seat on a ride home from work in Montgomery, Alabama.
At the time, it was customary for “colored passengers” to give up their seats to “white passengers” if the bus was fully occupied. Rosa Parks was arrested, tried in court, found guilty, and fined $10 for violating the city ordinance. Her defiance sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott, which shortly after, inspired nationwide efforts to end racial segregation of public facilities.
