(WTVR) – A moment of reflection for President Obama was caught on camera earlier this week.

The President was captured on camera following a campaign fundraiser in Michigan Wednesday.

He visited the Henry Ford museum and sat on the bus where Rosa Parks made history.

She refused to give up her seat to a white passenger in 1955.

Rosa Parks passed away in 2005 at the age of 92.

In 2002 the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities announced the decaying bus would be moved to the Ford Museum for restoration.
