National Day of Courage for the Rosa Parks centennial

Lish from The Henry Ford Museum writes, "Henry Ford Museum in metro Detroit is hosting a National Day of Courage in honor of Rosa Parks' 100th birthday. We're encouraging folks to share a digital badge of courage that they want to stand up for. We'll also be unveiling the new Rosa Parks stamp from the USPS that day, too."


  1. Rosa Parks was surely a courageous woman, but her civil disobedience and the subsequent bus boycott was a coup for *community organizing*, not a individual heroism. She was part of a movement — the myth of the one little old lady who stumbled her way into changing the world does a disservice to the many people who helped make that event possible.
