Obama and House Speaker John Boehner unveiled a statue of Parks in a ceremony at the Capitol. Parks becomes the first black woman to be honored with a full-length statue in the Capitol’s Statuary Hall.

A bust of another black woman, abolitionist Sojourner Truth, sits in the Capitol Visitors Center.

Obama says the nation learned from Parks that there is always something we can do to improve the future.
