MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin (Fox 32 News) - Bus riders in Milwaukee this weekend found that one seat on every bus was reserved in honor of Rosa Parks.
In Montgomery, Alabama, in 1955, Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a white man. Her act of civil disobedience eventually led to a Supreme Court ruling that outlawed segregation on public transit.
The seats were each marked with a sign and a single rose.
We're proud to once again honor #RosaParks by keeping a seat open and placing a red rose on every bus from Friday, November 30 through Sunday, December 2. https://t.co/Q4ww2ZSX8D pic.twitter.com/o401pcTfJ5— RideMCTS (@RideMCTS) November 29, 2018
