Detroiters say Farewell to Rosa Parks

Today we bid a final farewell to Rosa Parks, the mother of the civil rights movement.It won’t be easy to say good-bye. Detroit was the city that gave her refuge when she was abused and mistreated in the South, simply for taking a courageous stand against segregation. We opened our arms to her, embraced her strength and loved her for all she did to change the history of our nation.

Now all we can do is show our gratitude.

Good-bye, Mother Parks. Your children will miss you. Godspeed.
