Los Angeles, California
- Earlier this week the United States Postal Service issued a Rosa Parks stamp on what would have been the late civil rights icon's 100th birthday.
The Rosa Parks Forever Stamp went on sale Monday, and an oversized version was unveiled during the National Day of Courage celebration at The Henry Ford museum in Dearborn. The stamp bears an artist's rendering of a 1950s-era photo of Parks. This Sunday, February 10, 2013 with the help of the United States Postal Service the First AME Church of Los Angeles will host a Los Angeles Unveiling of the Stamp and after all services at FAME Church the stamps will be on sale.
Rosa Parks attended First AME Church of Los Angeles when she lived in California during the cold winter months in Detroit Michigan.
Parks was arrested in 1955 for refusing to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Ala., bus to a white man, an act that helped bring the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. to prominence. First AME Church of Los Angeles continues to celebrate her legacy and years of friendship.
