One seat on every MCTS bus being kept empty in honor of Rosa Parks

MILWAUKEE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- If you're taking a Milwaukee County Bus on Friday, you'll notice a tribute to Rosa Parks.

One seat on every bus is being kept empty in honor of civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks.

It was on this day in 1955 that Parks, an African American woman, refused to give up her seat on a bus for a white person in Montgomery, Alabama.

The incident became one of the inspirations for the Civil Rights movement.
