Google has strived to honor African American civil rights activist Rosa Parks, who 55 years ago today, denied giving up her seat on a bus for a white passenger. Due to this stance she took on December 1st 1955, Parks was arrested, which sparked a boycott of the Montgomery, Alabama, bus line that happened for 381 days, declares her official website.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was named the spokesperson for the Bus Boycott, and the protest spread across the country, calling for equal rights for all citizens. If you surf over to Google's U.S. homepage today, you'll see the above Doodle, which, when clicked on, leads to search results relevant to the activist.
Google has truly been honoring a diverse array of people via its Doodle this past year, including John Lennon, Agatha Christie and even Pac-man (who isn't really a person, but still).

So a very significant memorial made by one of the world's largest companies and a stance worthy of such a big salute.
