To mark February as Black History Month during our tenth anniversary celebration of Toobworld's TV Crossover Hall of Fame, this week we're inducting Rosa Parks as our historical figure.

In the 'Touched By An Angel' episode "Black Like Monica", Ms. Parks appeared as herself back in 1999. But she's also been played by several actresses in different projects:

Jonelle Allen
. . . American Woman: Portraits of Courage, The (1976)

Angela Bassett
. . . Rosa Parks Story, The (2002)

Yolanda King
. . . "King" (1978) {(#1.1)}

Iris Little Thomas
. . . Boycott (2001)

And she's even been portrayed in the Tooniverse....

Michele Morgan
. . . "Boondocks, The" (2005) {Return of the King (#1.9)}

We're honored to add her to the TV Crossover Hall of Fame.....
