Centro Bus is encouraging passengers to reserve a seat in honor of Civil Rights leader Rosa Parks on her birthday this Saturday February 4th.

WIBX is reporting that Parks is being remembered for her brave stand she took on December 1st, 1955 when she refused to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama bus in protest of racial segregation.

Commemorative posters and stickers will be placed near a seat behind the bus driver on buses throughout Oneida, Onondaga, Oswego and Cayuga Counties to mark Rosa Parks Day.
