The Man Behind Rosa Parks

In that famous photo, it wasn't a sullen white segregationist sitting behind Rosa Parks on a bus after all.
Alison Graham on the bus she rides home from school in New Jersey, is next to a poster showing her grandfather, Nicholas C. Chriss, and Rosa Parks on a Montgomery, Ala., bus. Mr. Chriss was a reporter working at the time for United Press International out of Atlanta. He died in 1990.
