Rosa Parks, civil rights heroine, is dead :: Detroit Free Press

She refused to give up her seat and she changed a country.

Rosa Parks received her civil rights training from Virginia Durr. My mother did babysitting for the Durrs uring the New Deal period when the Durrs lived on Seminary Hill in Alexandria, Virginia.

Clifford and Virginia Durr had a positive influence on many people.
