Rosa Parks' Body Arrives Back In Detroit

Thousands of people in Detroit are now lining up and are preparing to say a final goodbye to Rosa Parks.

Late Monday evening, Rosa Parks' body arrived back in her adopted hometown of Detroit. A crowd gathered in cold rainy, windy weather to greet the plane to great her body.

An honor guard carried her casket to a hearse. The body is now at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American history, where thousands of people are going to start pouring past it early Tuesday morning.

Before Parks' body arrived in Detroit, thousands poured past her coffin in Washington D.C. On Sunday, she laid in honor in the U.S. Capitol where the President paid his respects.

 On Monday,  a memorial service was held at the nation's capitol where politicians, celebrities, and the general public said goodbye. Some 30,000 people walked by Parks' casket in Washington D.C.
