Rosa Parks

I created an illustration of Rosa Parks several years ago for a traveling exhibit of the Civil Rights Walk of Fame sponsored by Anheuser-Busch. This was one of about thirty illustration I created for this exhibit

I bought a used book about ten years ago  about American agriculture. It contained drawings of historical farm equipment. Recently I was looking at this book,which was printed in 1926, and read a chapter called The Cotton Kingdom. Below are excerpts from this chapter. The book was called The Pageant of America and the publisher was Oxford University Press. I wonder if it is too late for an apology.

Thank God for Rosa Parks.
