Rosa Parks: She Sat Down So That We Might Stand(article) by The Hon. Louis Farrakhan

Wednesday, December 02, 2015Brother Mustafaa

On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Rosa Parks defining action on a Montgomery bus which led to the bus boycott and a host of other civil rights fights, I would like to share these words from The Hon. Louis Farrakhan speaking at her funeral... The cause for which she fought and the mission for which she lived continues living in those of us who meet the current challenges our community faces. We honor her for being a strong woman who stood for us in the best way she knew how for our Freedom & Justice...

"Rosa Parks was chosen from the womb of her mother to do something that would make a change. I like to think of her as a disciple of Christ. You may ask, “Farrakhan, what do you know about being a disciple of Christ?” In the presence of our mother, I would like to say that too many of us know his name. Many of us praise his name, but too few of us are willing to be his disciples. Rosa Parks was a disciple of Christ and, therefore, we cannot celebrate death, because there is no death for those who die in the Lord, as the scripture teaches." The Hon. Louis Farrakhan
