Parks Day to commemorate the accomplishments of Mrs. Rosa L. Parks, a woman of great courage, vision, love and faith who helped usher in the modern civil rights movement on December 1, 1955, by refusing to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery Alabama. Each resident of this state is requested to observer the day with appropriate activities."
