Rosa Parks embodies all that the International Conductor Freedom Award stands for. Stating once, that "[she] would like to be known as a person who is concerned about freedom and equality and justice and prosperity for all people," 1 it is only fitting that she became the first recipient of the International Freedom Conductor Award in 1998.
