Rosa Parks' mugshot

According to the New York Post: “Senator Charles E. Schumer, Democrat of New York, said in an interview Thursday”:Civil Rights leader Rosa Parks will soon be the first African American Woman to have her likeness displayed  in the Capitol’s Statuary Hall. The statue will be installed later this year.

Statuary Hall is ordinarily reserved for full-size statues from the states; each state sends two statues of its choosing to be put on display. The likeness of Ms. Parks was authorized by a special act of Congress in 2005; it represents the first commission by Congress for a full-size statue since the 1870s, according to the National Endowment for the Arts, which oversaw the design competition for the statue.
