The Digital Rosa


     A page written by Rosa Parks about her unjust arrest. The Library of Congress has digitized her archival materials and made them available online HERE.
    
                                            
     For a long time the materials were locked in  legal battle. Then a benefactor bought them and handed them over the The Library of Congress for a few years. After that? Hopefully in a Montgomery facility. It is where she took her stand and earned the unofficial title Mother of The Civil Rights Movement.
     Appropriately, the first African-American Director of The Library of Congress just been nominated
     You can also watch a documentary about the process of digitizing the Rosa Parks collection HERE
