Visit The Rosa Parks Bus At The State Capitol Today

Today, February 1st is National Freedom Day, and the beginning of Black History Month.  In honor of Rosa Parks, who refused to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama bus in 1955,  a Sacramento Regional Transit replica “Ole Blue” is parked in front of the California State Capital today for visitors to view.  This is a great opportunity to bring your kids down, have them board the bus and talk to them about race relations and equality.
