A seat to be reserved in honor of civil rights icon.
The Milwaukee County Transit system will honor civil rights icon Rosa Parks on Friday.
Every bus in the MCTS fleet will have a seat reserved in honor of Parks, along with a sign and the quote, “My only concern was to get home after a hard day’s work.”
Headlights on all buses will also be kept on all day while driving.
Parks refused to give up her "colored seat" to a white passenger on a Montgomery, Ala., bus on Dec. 1, 1955.
Her act of defiance led to a bus boycott in the city and a subsequent court case paved the way for a landmark Supreme Court ruling outlawing segregation on public transportation.
