(WXYZ) - We have a sneak peek of the historical stamp that will honor civil rights legend Rosa Parks.
It will be officially unveiled Monday in a ceremony at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit.
The event will mark what would have been Rosa Parks' 100th birthday.
It’s free and open to the public. Our own Editorial Director Chuck Stokes will serve as the emcee of the event.
The stamp honoring Parks is just the latest in a long line of honors presented to the woman called the Mother of the Civil Rights movement.
During her lifetime Parks was awarded many honorary degrees, as well as both the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal.
Parks will be recognized again later this year when a statue of her likeness is placed in Statuary Hall at the US Capitol. Parks will be the first African American woman to have a statue in Statuary Hall.
The statue was commissioned by a special act of Congress that was signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2005.
Parks died on October 24, 2005 at the age of 92.
