By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2005

Park's story is about what one person can do, but it's about much more than that. It's about leadership and about community organization. So, what shall we do about persistent, grinding poverty in our country? What in the world does Rosa Parks lying in the Capitol Rotunda mean unless we organize to answer that question?
