From December 1 through December 8, a seat on each Mankato City bus will be reserved in honor of Rosa Parks, who contributed to the Civil Rights movement. She refused to give up her seat while riding a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, in 1955, and her decision helped end racial segregation on public facilities. Each saved seat will feature a sign reminding riders how Parks’ quiet strength made a seat available to everyone.
