This is awesome! Another civil rights pioneer will be seen within the walls of the U.S. Capital for decades to come. This really is one of my heroes. The statue of Parks, 9 feet tall and in bronze, will be in Statuary Hall, where the House of Representatives met in the early 1800s. A niece and a longtime friend of Parks assisted the President and a few congressional leaders pull off the shroud that covered the statue. It’s perfect too. I say it signifies who this woman really was. Strong, hard, stood well in her position, and posture up straight with confidence. I LOVE IT. Drop down bottom and check it out.
