Gainesville commuters will have something special to look at each time they board the bus at the downtown RTS station. A plaque in Rosa Parks' honor was unveiled Sunday late afternoon to remember her historical contribution to our society.
"To honor Rosa Parks for what she did on a city bus in 1955 is very important because she took a stand and we wouldn't have had the freedom back in the 1950s," said Rev. Milford Lewis Griner, the Founder & Chairman of the Rosa Parks Quiet Courage Committee.
The reverend also said that up to 11 thousand dollars were raised over a year long period to fund this memorial. For more on this story please see video:
