I’d Do It Again,’ Says Rosa Parks

On the even­ing of Dec. 1, 1955, Rosa Parks be­came a sym­bol of hu­man dig­nity when she was jailed for re­fus­ing to re­lin­quish her bus seat to a white man when she rode home from work. A dec­ade later, in an in­ter­view at her home in De­troit, Parks said that she had no re­grets. The story pub­lished Dec. 16, 1965 be­gins with an aside that would sur­prise many today, not­ing that read­ers hear­ing her name might ask: “Who?”
