On postcard verso: Civil Rights Heroes, 20th century -- Mrs. Rosa Parks was arrested when she refused to give up her seat to a white man on a segregated bus in Montgomery, AL, on Dec. 5, 1955. That set off a year-long bus boycott and launched the modern Civil Rights Movement, led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., (center, right panel). Bowed in prayer at "The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom," August 28, 1963, Dr. King stands at Lincoln Memorial in Washington with Whitney Young, Jr., Exec. Dir., Nat'l Urban League; and Walter Reuther, Pres., United Auto Workers.
