A special display honoring Rosa Parks, “the mother of the civil rights movement” was just installed at the Vice President’s house to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Parks’s birth and to celebrate Black History Month. 
The display features facsimiles from the National Archives: her 1955 arrest record, the diagram showing where she was seated on a Montgomery bus when she was arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a white passenger, and the 1999 public law awarding her the Congressional Gold Medal.
