Rosa Parks Tea Towel

Rosa Parks (1913 -2005) was an African American civil rights activist in Alabama. She organised and collaborated with civil rights leaders including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., eventually becoming an international icon in her own right for resistance to racial segregation. Her refusal to surrender her seat to a white passenger on a Montgomery bus spurred a city-wide boycott. The city had no choice but to lift the law requiring segregation on public buses. She subsequently became known nationwide as "the first lady of civil rights" and "the mother of the freedom movement".

Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 48cm x 70cm. Machine wash at 40 degrees max. We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.
