QUESTION 23
INTERVIEWER:

WHAT, HOW DID YOU FEEL ABOUT GETTING BACK ON THE BUSES FOR THE FIRST TIME? WERE YOU RIDING WITH KING AND THE CLERGYMEN WHEN THAT-

Rosa Parks:

No, I was not riding with them. In fact, I was not, actually was not planning to ride the buses at all. The day my mother was quite ill and I was at home with her. But some reporters from one of the publications, I think it was _Look_ magazine came to my home and asked if I would take a little time out and go downtown with them to have my picture taken riding the bus, which I did.
