What Rosa Parks meant

"Here was a woman who through a very unassuming personal action triggered a whole movement. I want to pay homage to that. As a white person, I find it particularly extraordinary that her act was such a universal message. It did as much for me as [for] any minority in our society."

--Brian Higgins of Takoma Park, Md., quoted in The New York Times 10/31/05
