Photo Of The Day: Barack Obama Sits on Rosa Parks Bus

Posted on Dec 1 2012 - 2:35pm by Tracy

Today is the anniversary of Rosa Parks’ refusal to sit in the back of the bus in Montgomery, Ala. And this photograph of President Obama sitting on that exact same bus 57 years later is a poignant reminder of just how much America has changed in half a century. The image was taken at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich., where the humble 36-seat General Motors bus is on display.

Classic photo!
