USPS issues Rosa Parks stamp

Posted: Updated:

The US Postal Service is honoring Rosa Parks by releasing a "forever stamp" of her image Monday.

Parks was arrested in 1955 for refusing to give up her seat on a public bus to a white man.

An act of defiance that became a symbol of the civil rights movement.  

Monday would have been her 100th birthday.

Parks' forever stamp is the second in a series of three civil rights stamps being released this year.
