Street signs mark the corner of Rosa Parks Blvd and Martin Luther King Jr Blvd in Detroit

25 Oct 2005, Detroit, Michigan, USA — Street signs mark the intersection of Rosa Parks Boulevard and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Detroit, Michigan October 25, 2005. Parks, a black civil rights activist, died Monday at the age of 92 of natural causes in her apartment in Detroit. Parks sparked a 381-day boycott of the bus system when she refused to give up her bus seat to a white man in Alabama 50 years ago. The boycott was led by then little-known Baptist minister, Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., who earned the Nobel Peace Prize for his work. — Image by © REBECCA COOK/Reuters/Corbis
