refinery29 February 4 is the birthday of civil rights icon #RosaParks, the woman who quietly changed the world from her seat on a Montgomery, AL bus.

We all know Rosa Parks' story of calm strength and passive resistance. But when we celebrate her life we need to also remember that she was not just a woman who was pushed to the breaking point — Long before the moment that made her a national hero, she was also an activist, a leader, and advocate who worked tirelessly for what she believed in. The story of her life’s work was made in a moment. But she took her whole life to prepare for it.

Parks taught us that it’s not enough to do right for yourself — sometimes you’re called on to be strong enough to do right on someone else’s behalf. Sometimes you have to choose the harder road to live easier with yourself. Sometimes, when you’re truly tired, you have to stand up for yourself, for others, and for your rights. #R29Reads
