The Google Rosa Parks Logo

Google is remembering the historic day when Rosa Parks refused to listen to the bus driver when she was told to give up her seat for a white passenger. Today, 55 years ago, was that day in Montgomery, Alabama. Although she wasn’t the first to make such a statement, her action on that day initiated the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

Rosa Parks is well known as a African American civil rights activist and was called by the U.S. Congress “the first lady of civil rights”, and “the mother of the freedom movement”. So, although today is not her birthday – Google decided to remember the anniversary of the day she refused to move with this logo:

There are some people who are upset with Google that they did not post a red ribbon today, in addition to the Rosa Parks logo, to commemorate World AIDS Day. Yahoo has a special ribbon logo but Google has no mention of it on their home page.

Here is the static Yahoo logo:
