Stateside: Rosa Parks goes to Washington
In 2005, the Daub and Firmin Sculpture Studio of California was commissioned to create a bronze statue of Rosa Parks.
Parks, who would have been 100 this month, will be the first life-sized representation that is approved and funded by Congress since 1873.
Her likeness will also be the first full-sized statue of an African-American woman in the National Statuary Hall.
Seven years after the commission was placed, Michigan Radio's Cynthia Canty spoke with one of her sculptors, Eugene Daub.
You can listen to the full Stateside interview above.
