Outkast has settled a dispute with Rosa Parks over the use of her name for the song "Rosa Parks" off the duo's Aquemini album
Hip-hop group Outkast have settled their long dispute with icon Rosa Parks, who is known for refusing to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama, bus to a white woman, over the use of her name for the song "Rosa Parks" off the duo's Aquemini album.
The points of the settlement mention among others that Parks will live in comfort for the rest of her life, she will be well taken care of, and that a music CD will be produced by Sony BMG, with OutKast among the performers. Moreover, the settlement also promises for a television tribute in honor of Parks who has made America a better place for all races. A DVD of the program, in addition, will be distributed to thousands of schools.
