The funeral ceremony lasted 7 hours, from the late morning to the first shadows of the evening, and has been a long celebration to Rosa Parks' life, to her battles for the civil rights and to the future that will not be able to forget her work.
Rosa Parks died on October 24th at the age of 92 and since that day all the United States are paying her the honor that deserves. Mrs. Parks has been one of the more important activist of the movement for the civil rights and she was famous to refuse to leave her place on a bus to a white man in 1955 in Montgomery city.
