Summary
This dataset is an export from the Library of Congress By the People crowdsourcing program (https://crowd.loc.gov). It contains a combination of digital collections metadata, volunteer-created text generated through a transcription and review process, and metadata representing the arrangement of the items in the By the People platform, as defined by the Concordia (https://github.com/LibraryOfCongress/concordia External) instance on which By the People operates. Concordia is an open source platform developed by the Library of Congress. Development is ongoing, iterative, and integrates user-centered design following the key principles of trust and approachability. README file
The text available in this dataset is generated from the pages in the By the People Campaign, “Rosa Parks: In Her Own Words." Rosa Parks is best known for one courageous act on one extraordinary day: she refused to give up her bus seat to a white passenger on December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama. This decision launched the Montgomery Bus Boycott and a new phase of the civil rights movement. But it wasn't the first time she stood up for herself and others, and it wasn't the last. Hers was a life of activism and service. Transcriptions are available for letters to and from her mother, Leona McCauley; letters from her brother, Sylvester; and a poignant letter from her father, James. The largest group of her letters are to her husband, Raymond, in 1957 and 1958, when they had to live apart to find paying work. Raymond and Rosa Parks coped at a distance with the fallout from her bus protest and the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Rosa's letters are loving, compassionate, and nonjudgmental in the relationships that mattered most to her. Also included are transcriptions for fragmentary writings she created during and after the boycott. Rosa Parks: In Her Own Words consists of 1769 images of digitized content from the Rosa Parks Papers collection. The dataset includes transcriptions and data for these 1769 pages. README file

Notes
-  "By transcribing Rosa Parks' papers, you'll learn about the relationships and events that shaped her lifetime of activism, and her experiences both as an individual, and as an icon of the civil rights movement. Available for transcription are letters to and from her mother, Leona McCauley; letters from her brother, Sylvester; and a poignant letter from her father, James. The largest group of her letters are to her husband, Raymond, in 1957 and 1958, when they had to live apart to find paying work. Raymond and Rosa Parks coped at a distance with the fallout from her bus protest and the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Rosa's letters are loving, compassionate, and nonjudgmental in the relationships that mattered most to her. Also available for transcription are fragmentary writings she created during and after the boycott. Through powerful prose, they reveal a woman who was strong, courageous, clear-eyed, and grounded in her core ethical beliefs, but not immune to pain inflicted by racial discrimination. This campaign launched February 4, 2020 and completed March 21, 2020."--Campaign website.
