US President Barack Obama applauds after unveiling a statue of Rosa Parks in Statuary Hall on Capitol Hill February 27, 2013 in Washington, DC.Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus, so it was fitting that her statue unveiled Wednesday by President Barack Obama in the US Capitol depicts her in the position from which she launched a civil rights revolution. Congressional leaders, dozens of relatives and several hundred guests joined Obama as Parks, represented by a nine-foot (2.7-meter) bronze statue, took her rightful place among the nation's heroes depicted in Statuary Hall.
