Whereas, You have inspired the modern civil rights movement by refusing to give your seat to a white man in opposition to the laws of the day in Montgomery, Alabama on December, 1 1955.

Whereas, Your arrest for said act of defiance not only lead to the ascension of the young pastor of Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., but the end of legal segregation;

Whereas, Your lifelong example of grace and courage under fire has made you an inspiration to freedom-loving people everywhere;

Whereas, Your legacy is “the pursuit of Peace, Justice, Equality, Love and a fulfillment of what our lives should be”;

I Proclaim that on this date, October 25, in the year of our Lord 2005, You are now and forever, the Mother of the Modern Civil Rights Movement for all people who yearn for freedom from the tyrannies of this life.

Thank you for your life of sacrifice and may you rest in peace.
