outkast rosa parksToday is the 55th anniversary of the day that Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white passenger on an Alabama bus.

Today marks 55 years since Rosa Parks took a stand while riding a public bus in Alabama. Google has dedicated their homepage doodle to Rosa Parks and they are not the only one commemorating her anniversary today. Outkast, the hit Atlanta based hip-hop group has a single out in which they dedicated to Parks.

On December 1, 1955 Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat while aboard a Montgomery, Alabama bus. After Parks was arrested, a public boycott of the Montgomery, Alabama bus line erupted. The bus boycott, which was lead by none other than Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., lasted for 381 days.
