Photograph autographed by Rosa Parks, one of the first symbols of the fight against racial segregation in the United States.

Photograph, black and white, showing Rosa Parks on her arrival at the police station in 1958. Signed in black pen, probably during celebrations in the 1990s. 25.3 cm x 20.3 cm. Excellent condition. Single piece.

Rosa Parks (1913 - 2005) was a seamstress who became a symbol of the fight against racial segregation in the United States. On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, she refused to give up her seat to a white passenger on the bus. Taken to the police station, she decides not to pay the fine.

A young, unknown, 26-year-old black pastor, Martin Luther King, then organizes a protest and boycott campaign against the bus company: the mobilization is a success and lasts 381 days.

In November 1956, the American Supreme Court canceled the segregationist laws on buses, as they were against the Constitution; in 1964, the Civil Rights Act is passed, a law that prohibits any form of discrimination in public places; in 2008, Barack Obama becomes the first black American president.

Rosa Parks was one of the leading figures in the black civil rights movement in the United States. Discreet until the end of her life in 2005, there are few autograph documents of her.
