From the website:

Rosa Parks is internationally acclaimed as the "The Mother of the Civil Rights Movement". On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama bus and set the Civil Rights Movement in motion. But that was not the first time Rosa Parks stood up for her rights. Prior to her famous act of courage, she exhibited a firm, quiet strength to change things that were unjust. She served as secretary of the NAACP, and later, Adviser to the NAACP Youth Council.

For forty years, Rosa Parks has traveled the world receiving awards for her continued efforts on behalf of racial harmony. We are proud to add honor this incredible woman whose act of courage helped change America forever.

Rosa Parks recently celebrated her 90th birthday and is still active in fighting racial injustices and sharing her message with others.

If done well it could be nice, but doesn't look too imaginative.

Is it 163rd or 118th?

I understand that it's 118th street. *The "St" next to the 163 is part of "St. Nicholas."

Ah, yes, my mistake. *Sorry, I had the past week off from work, so I'm still trying to jump start the brain.
