Mrs Parks' legacy

Mrs Parks died on 24 October 2005, aged 92.

Civil rights leader Jesse Jackson said her legacy would never die.

"I am leaving this legacy to all of you," she said in 1988, "to bring peace, justice, equality, love and a fulfilment of what our lives should be.

"Without vision, the people will perish, and without courage and inspiration, dreams will die - the dream of freedom and peace."
