Tyler Transit Department and St. James CME Church hosted the free event which also included a program at the church and video presentation on African American history in the city of Tyler. Rosa Parks was known for refusing to give up her bus seat in the African American section of the bus to a white passenger when the whites-only section was full on Dec. 1, 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama.
