U.S. Post Office Honoring Rosa Parks

Posted on: 4:52 pm, February 4, 2013, by

(Michigan) The U.S. Post Office is honoring Rosa Parks with a Forever stamp.

Today would have been the Civil Rights activist’s 100th birthday.

The stamp, which is on sale now, is just one of several events in Michigan scheduled to honor the late civil rights icon.  

The Henry Ford Museum is hosting a 12-hour celebration featuring speeches, music and presentations.

And people can also take a seat on the Rosa Parks bus, which is on permanent display inside the museum.
