FBI says only 1 file on Rosa Parks

DETROIT, Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Rosa Parks, the U.S. civil rights icon who died Oct. 24 at the age of 92, had no significant FBI file, the agency says.

The FBI said Parks was the subject of a single file created by the agency's Detroit field office and that the file has been destroyed. It was not revealed what was in the file.

The Detroit News had filed a Freedom of Information Act request after her death requesting any files held by the FBI in Washington, Mobile, Ala. and Detroit.

Parks sparked the historic 381-day Montgomery, Ala., bus boycott in 1955 when she was arrested for refusing to give up her bus seat to a white man, providing a major impetus for the national civil rights movement.
