PBS Digital Studios: Why do we all know a misleading story about Rosa Parks? Watch the episode to find out [YouTube (10:04)]


Rosa Parks

PBS Digital Studios writes:

We all know Rosa Parks as the "tired old lady" on a bus who unknowingly sparked a civil rights firestorm by refusing to give up her seat in Montgomery, Alabama. But is that true? Not entirely. Rosa Parks was in fact a civil right activist who spent years fighting for justice and she knew exactly what she was doing. In fact, she wasn’t even the first black woman to refuse to give up her seat. The truncated version of the story we all know today eliminates many of Ms. Parks' most incredible achievements, particularly her many years fighting for civil rights.

So why do we all know a misleading story about Rosa Parks? Watch the episode to find out.
