A group of Black girls is melting hearts on the internet as the nation celebrated the birthday of iconic civil rights hero Rosa Parks during Black History Month. Dressed like the pioneer, the girls performed a birthday song, which was published by Because of Them We Can.
Social media users showed love with affectionate emojis.
“Those little girls are so cute!!!” an Instagram user wrote, adding in a couple of hearts.
Because of Them We Can also published iconic images of the late human rights champion who was born 108 years ago. The pictures included photos of Parks from her younger days, as well as an image of the humanitarian’s meeting with Nelson Mandela and a portrait of her later years.
In addition to capturing her efforts in activism, the photos showed Parks in the simple moments, such as the times when she would get her hair styled.
