DOCUMENT ***Signed***
Detroit, Michigan 1994 - Signed "Rosa Parks" in black ink. This is a personal check from the First Independence National Bank in Detroit Michigan. It is dated Jan 18, 1994 and made out to Juliett Gamble Mobley for the amount of $25.00. The check has been completely filled out by Rosa Parks and is in FINE CONDITION. Parks, Rosa Louise, 1913-2005, American civil-rights activist, b. Tuskegee, Ala., as Rosa Louise McCauley. A seamstress and long-time member of the Montgomery, Ala., chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), her Dec. 1, 1955, arrest for refusing to give up her seat on a municipal bus to a white man sparked the Montgomery bus boycott. This successful protest, which lasted just over a year, marked the emergence of Martin Luther King, Jr., to national prominence as a civil-rights leader and provided the model for future nonviolent movement actions. Fired from her job and unable to find work, Parks moved in 1957 to Detroit, where she remained active in the civil-rights movement and worked (1965-88) as an aide to Congressman John Conyers. She was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, Congress's highest honor, in 1999. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
