Rosa Parks with Martin Luther King, Jr.

A photo of Rosa Parks with Dr. Martin Luther King, circa 1955. If this is 1955, it was the same year that Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat on a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Rosa Parks was born in 1913, so she would probably be in her early 40s in this photo.
