Civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks was honored today, on the 100th anniversary of her birthday.
The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan, held a 12-hour celebration honoring parks.
Along with speeches and presentations, visitors had the opportunity to take a seat on the Rosa Parks bus which is on permanent display at the museum.
It's the same bus Parks was arrested on in 1955 for refusing to give up her seat to a white man in Montgomery, Alabama.
Parks later moved to Detroit and died in 2005.
The U.S. Postal Service also issued a special Rosa Parks commemorative stamp at the museum.
