The legacy of Rosa Parks continues to garner well-deserved acclaim. Earlier this month, the civil rights icon was honored with a postage stamp to commemorate what would have been her 100th birthday.
In January, historian Jeanne Theoharis published The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks -- a biography that focuses on her life and activism.
On February 27, Rosa Parks will be the first African-American woman honored with a statue in Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol.
