Rosa Parks, the woman who refused to give up her seat on the bus and so lit the flame of the civil rights movement in the US died quietly in her sleep last night.

Her courage was an inspiration to generations of people committed to equality, liberty and justice. And the echoes of her actions can be seen over here in the NI Civil Rights Campaign.

May she rest in peace.

Really? In what way apart from being an inspiration did she contribute? Just curious, I never heard anything about it.

She met with Gerry Adams and offered her support to him when he was on one of his visits to the US.

It was probably this meeting that inspired her to fight for equal rights for black people.

Fair enough. She was friendly to the cause of Irish unity.

my point is that he couldn't have inspired her to fight against segregation then, could he? (given meriwether's comment)

i'd have loved to hear her view on how life has chnged since the forties and how it has also stayed sadly the same.

may she rest in peace
