Apple tribute to Rosa Parks

Pretty cool, huh? One question though: why is the racist whitey behind her, wearing an Ipod, too?

Rosa Parks began serving as secretary for the NAACP in 1943 and still held that position when she was arrested.

Her refusal to move to the back of the bus wasn't a spontaneous gesture, but a provocation organized by her longtime employer, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

At the time that Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat, she had been a very active member of the NAACP for more than a decade. She was well aware that there had already been instances around the south in which blacks had refused to give up bus seats; and she was familiar with discussions within the Montgomery NAACP chapter about how, if a case were to arise in Montgomery, it might be a good idea to organize around it and use it as a way to challenge Montgomery's segregation laws in the courts.
