"Rosa Parks" by Outkast

Personally, I can think of no greater tribute to Rosa Parks than the utterly joyous Rosa Parks by OutKast, which originally appeared on their 1998 album Aquemini; alas, Parks herself wasn't quite so honoured by the homage, so what do I know? Whether the ensuing lawsuit over the song was the doing of Parks or whether she was put up to it by her advisers (who had some financial interest in the outcome, after all) will have to remain a mystery, though, as that knowledge died with her on this day in 2005.
