The Rosa Parks' Papers - Rosa Parks' act of civil disobedience in 1955 sparked the Montgomery, Alabama bus boycott that ignited the civil rights movement and brought a new young pastor, Martin Luther King Jr. to national prominence. Parks would have been 100 years old on February 4th. She died in 2005 but her personal papers and correspondence are still not publicly available because of a dispute among her heirs, a court's ruling that the papers must be kept together and an auctioneer's inability to find a buyer. David Tereshchuk reports. Grand Rapids Interfaith Year - Over the past year the city of Grand Rapids, Michigan, known for its religious conservatism, held over 250 interfaith events aimed at deepening interfaith understanding. Judy Valente reports on the achievements of the unique year-long city-wide effort to build interpersonal relationships between people of different faiths.
