Museum visitors climb aboard the city bus that black civil rights activist Rosa Parks was arrested on 50 years ago in Alabama at Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. The bus, that was purchased and restored by the museum in 2001, is draped with a black and purple shroud to honor Parks who died in Detroit at the age of 92.
