Rosa Louise Parks was a devoted civil rights activist for years before she became a household name on December 1, 1955. When she refused an order to give up her seat to a white passenger and move to the back of the bus, Mrs. Parks' act of defiance became the catalyst for the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Hailed as "the Mother of the Modern Civil Rights Movement," Rosa Parks earned worldwide recognition and numerous awards including the prestigious Presidential Medal of Freedom and Congressional Gold Medal of Honor.
This doll from Barbie's Inspiring Women line is sculpted to Parks' likeness and is fully poseable for lots of play or display possibilities. She comes wearing a floral dress and a matching coat and pillbox hat, as well as glasses gloves, and a clutch purse. This set includes the doll, a doll stand, and a Certificate of Authenticity.
