A statue of civil rights activist Rosa Parks stands in National Statuary Hall in the United States Capitol after being unveiled February 27, 2013 in Washington, DC. Rosa Parks, whose arrest in 1955 for refusing to yield her seat on a segregated bus to a white passenger helped ignite the modern American civil rights movement. This bronze statue depicts Parks seated on a rock-like formation of which she seems almost a part, symbolizing her famous refusal to give up her bus seat. The statue is close to nine feet tall including its pedestal.
