Description:

On December 1, 2005, a marker commemorating Rosa Parks was placed at the bus plaza with a statue honoring longtime Tallahassee civic rights leader, Reverend C.K. Steele (1914-1980). The former pastor of Bethel Baptist Church, Rev. Steele became the most recognizable figure in the Tallahassee civil rights movement of the 1950s and 60s. Steele marched with Martin Luther King, Jr., and was a founding member of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Steele often proclaimed, 'I'd rather walk in dignity than ride in humiliation.' The Tallahassee city bus terminal bears his name.
