NY1 VIDEO: Her story is one for the history books. When she died on October 24, 2005, Rosa Parks was remembered not just for her refusal to give up her bus seat, but for the chain of events her act of defiance set off that would ultimately change the country. As we take a look back at 20 years of NY1, the station revisits Lewis Dodley's report on Park's life and legacy.

NY1 FOLLOW-UP: Days later, Rosa Parks would make history one last time as the first woman to be honored with a viewing in the Capitol Rotunda. ClientIP:,, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
