MLK Day 2012
Sixes Elementary kindergartener Aurora Gorr drew her interpretation of one of the seminal moments of the Civil Rights Movement, the day in December 1955 when Rosa Parks, a Montgomery, AL, seamstress, refused to give up her bus seat to someone white. She was arrested for her defiance. More than 50,000 people in Montgomery walked rather than board segregated buses for 381 days. Ultimately, the U.S. Supreme Court desegregated public transportation.
