New Woman in the Capitol
There's a new woman inside the Capitol Building. Rosa Parks' statue has been delivered to the Capitol and will be unveiled tomorrow. Rosa Parks is such an important figure in history. Her protest made a big impact on the Civil Right Movement in the United States. Her contributions have not gone unnoticed; she was the first female to lie in state at the Capitol, and this will be the first statue of an African American Woman inside the Capitol. There is a bust of Sojourner Truth in Emancipation Hall. I'm excited to see the statue tomorrow, and to be reminded that positive change is not without struggle.
