Obamas' Rosa Parks photo op



Less than sixty years after a young black woman was arrested for not giving up her bus seat for a white passenger, America's first black President sat in the very same spot to consider how far the U.S. has come on its civil rights journey.

President Barack Obama took time out of a campaign trip to visit the Henry Ford Museum in Michigan to step on board the GM vehicle that Rosa Parks made famous when she refused to vacate her seat for a white passenger one evening in December 1955.
