This Week in Atlanta...
Atlanta City Hall Celebrates the Life of Civil Rights Icon Rosa Parks. The special event was not only a celebration of what would be her 111th Birthday but the start of a movement to create a National Holiday in Her Honor!

A consortium emerging from Atlanta, Georgia is showcasing a collaborative 111th birthday commemoration for Mrs. Rosa Parks, often referred to as the “Mother of the Modern-Day Civil Rights Movement'' in America. With the collaborative 111th commemoration comes synergism for public awareness and petition work to support a federal holiday. Mrs. Parks, as a recipient of both the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal of Honor, emphasized that “the work” was not done until she passed in 2005.
A national Rosa Parks Day holiday will ensure Mrs. Parks’ leadership legacy in American history remains present for all Americans. Her indomitable commitment to the critical citizen and government leadership necessary to end the disparity in socio-economic outcomes in America never ceased. That kind of "Mrs. Parks commitment" needed to take on America's remaining systemic and societal discrimination, organizers say, can be amplified through a federal holiday to ensure "the work" imperative continues forward in the 21st century.
The current collaborative effort and intention extends to Mrs. Parks’ nieces, grandnieces and grandnephews, as well as to governmental representatives from the communities across the United States that Mrs. Parks served – in the South, in the North, in the Midwest, and on the West coast.
Convened by Former SCLC Youth Director and National Board member Brenda Davenport and Sean and Whitney Carnes, the consortium includes Civil rights, community, and governmental leaders old and young. The following are representative of the organizations and groups participating in the Rosa Parks Consortium: the A. D. King Foundation, Georgia Legislative Black Caucus, the Legacy Movement Connection, SCLC Women, Operation Rosa, Always More Rosa, and Pearls of Freedom.
Additional Atlanta events happening between Thursday, Feb. 1 and Monday, Feb. 5, 2024 under the collaborative banner include:a Rosa Parks birthday party celebration for students and a voter empowerment session at St. Paul's AME Church; worship recognition service at Ebenezer Baptist Church; and Rosa Parks Day at the Georgia State Capitol with a news conference/awards ceremony.
Atlanta’s transit authority, the Metropolitan Atlanta Transit Authority (MARTA) is a sponsor of the Rosa Parks Holiday Weekend, and a commemoration partner. MARTA has offered to make available a historical bus from Rosa Parks’ days, as well as a commemorative MARTA pass with an imprinted image of Mrs. Parks.
