Rosa Parks statue to be dedicated in Capitol

Rosa Parks' statue will be formally dedicated in the Capitol's Statuary Hall Feb. 27.

The statue, the first of an African-American women to be placed as part of the National Staturary Hall Collection, has been more than seven years in the making.

President George W. Bush signed into law on Dec. 1, 2005, legislation directing Congress to obtain a Parks statue and provide for placement in the Capitol.
