Rosa Parks to lie in repose at Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History

As I write this post, the body of Rosa Parks is being flown back to Detroit to the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, where it will remain through Wednesday.

Persons interested in paying their final respects to the civil rights pioneer will have a chance to do just that at the museum starting tonight at 9 pm.

Parks’ body will lie in repose at the Midtown Cultural Center attraction through 5 am on Wednesday.

Her body will then be transported by horse-drawn carriage to Greater Grace Temple on West Seven Mile Road in Detroit where funeral services will be held. Rosa Parks will be buried at Woodlawn Cemetary in Detroit.
