STORYLINE

President Bush, members of Congress and ordinary Americans paid tribute to Rosa Parks under the soaring dome of the Capitol Rotunda on Sunday, honouring the woman whose defiant act on a city bus challenged segregation in the South and inspired the civil rights movement.

Parks, a former seamstress, became the first woman to lie in honour in the Rotunda, sharing an honour bestowed upon Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy and other national leaders.

Bush and congressional leaders paused to lay wreaths by her casket, while members of a university choir greeted her with "The Battle Hymn of the Republic."

Outside the Capitol, as flags flew at half-mast, thousands of people awaited the chance to pay their respects, some arriving before noon.

The crowd cheered loudly when the motorcade, led by Parks' hearse and a vintage Washington DC Metro bus, arrived.

Her casket was carried from the hearse by a military honour guard while family members and friends outside the steps leading up to the Capitol prayed.

President Bush, who was not speaking during the brief ceremony, issued a proclamation on Sunday ordering the US flag to be flown at half-mast over all public buildings on Wednesday, the day of Parks' funeral and burial in Detroit.

Parks, who died last Monday, was arrested in 1955 for refusing to give up her bus seat to a white man.

Among those who supported her was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who led the 381-day boycott of the Montgomery, Alabama, bus system that helped initiate the modern civil rights movement.

At St. Paul A.M.E. Church in Montgomery on Sunday, where Parks had been lying in honour at the church since Saturday, a crowd including Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice celebrated her life.

And I just felt that it was important for me, as well as my family, to come up and just be able to pay some contribution to what she had done to society."

STORYLINE

Americans on Monday continued to pay tribute to Rosa Parks, the woman whose defiant act on a city bus inspired the modern civil rights movement.

More than 30-thousand filed silently by her coffin in the Capitol Rotunda in Washington DC.

People had begun gathering outside the Capitol before noon on Sunday and the line of well-wishers and mourners slowly pushed along into the early morning hours on Monday.

A few hours later, Senate majority leader Bill Frist accompanied new Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito and his family to the Rotunda, where they paused in silent remembrance.

Several senators joined the procession.

Parks' coffin stood in the centre of a Rotunda that includes a bronze bust of the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., who led the 381-day boycott of the Montgomery bus system that helped initiate the modern civil rights movement.

Parks, who died last Monday aged 92, was arrested in 1955 for refusing to give up her bus seat to a white man, an incident that inspired King and helped touch off the civil rights movement.

The former seamstress became the first woman to lie in honour in the Rotunda, sharing the tribute bestowed upon Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy and other national leaders.

Later on Monday, Parks' casket was taken down the steps of the East Capitol by a military honour guard of pallbearers, followed by her family,

in preparation for a memorial service.

A vintage Metropolitan bus dressed in black bunting followed the hearse, along with other city buses.

After the memorial service at the Metropolitan AME. Church in Washington, Parks was to lie in repose at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit.

STORYLINE

Former US President Bill Clinton, alongside his wife, Senator Hillary Clinton, joined other dignitaries and around 2,000 members of the public at the funeral of civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks.

At the Greater Grace Temple Church in Detroit, Michigan, the audience held hands and sang "We Shall Overcome" as family members filed past the casket before it was closed just before noon.

Bishop Charles Ellis III of Greater Grace Temple led the service as 4,000 people packed inside, to say goodbye to the diminutive figure who sparked a civil rights revolution by refusing 50 years ago to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama.

Mourners waited in long lines in the chilly morning to honour Parks. Hours before the funeral began, the line to get one of the 2,000 available public seats at the church extended more than two blocks in Parks' adopted hometown.

"Let us never forget that in that simple act and a lifetime of race and dignity, she (rosa Parks) showed us every single day what it means to be free" said Clinton, who remembered riding segregated buses in his native Arkansas until Parks' stand allowed him and others to break through that barrier of racism.

Clinton once presented Parks with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Parks was 92-years-old when she died on October 24 in Detroit. Nearly 50 years earlier, she was a 42-year-old tailor's assistant at a department store in Montgomery, Alabama, when she was arrested and fined 10 dollars plus four dollars in court costs for refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery city bus. Her action on December 1st, 1955, triggered a 381-day boycott of the bus system led by the Reverend Martin Luther King Junior.

The US Supreme Court ruled in December 1956 that segregated seats on city buses were unconstitutional, giving momentum to the battle against laws that separated the races in public accommodations and businesses throughout the southern United States.

But Parks and her husband Raymond were exposed to harassment and death threats in Montgomery, where they also lost their jobs.

They moved to Detroit with Rosa Parks' mother, Leona McCauley, in 1957.

The March On Washington

Just one hundred years after Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation to free the slaves, 200.000 march in Washington to rally for civil rights. In an orderly gathering at the Lincoln Memorial, Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. makes his most stirring address - "I have a dream..." and other black leaders urge Congress to pass the Civil Rights Bill to end racial inequity. They call for "Action Now" - the theme of the monstrous rally. None of the disorder that authorities feared develops. It is a serious gathering that is tinged with good-humor as if the demonstrators have finally found strength in each other.

For 2 successive nights hundreds of negroes threw bricks, bottles, even Molotov cocktails at New York City Police who tried to disperse roving gangs & stop looting.

Flags and many posters 'We shall overcome' Posters and the song. Marchers kneeling in road. Massed meeting......... President Johnson makes a Speech to Congress on the subject......... Translation of rough speech - "What happened in Selma is part of a far larger movement which reaches into every section and state of America. It is the effort of American Negroes to secure for themselves the full blessing of American life. Their cause must be our cause too. Because it's not just Negroes, but really it's all of us who must overcome the crippling legacy of bigotry and injustice. And we shall over come (applause). The time of justice has now come, and I tell you that I believe sincerely that no force can hold it back. It is right in the eyes of man and god that it should come and when it does, I think that day will brighten the lives of every American. (applause) The real hero of this struggle is the American Negro. His actions and protests, his courage to risk safety and even to risk his life, have awakened the conscience of this nation. His demonstrations have been designed to call attention to injustice, designed to provoke change, designed to stir reform. He has called upon us to make good the promise of America. And who among us can say that we would have made the same progress were it not for his persistent bravery and his faith in American democracy?"
