Events Moved and Removed

Replace Rosa Parks

Unsourced Events Removed
I've reluctantly removed the following from the Events section, as they don't seem to be supported by their respective articles:
- 1969 – The first legislation to limit aircraft noise levels at airports is introduced in U.S. Federal Air Regulation, Part 36.
- 1971 – The Indian Army recaptures part of Kashmir occupied forcibly by Pakistan.
- 1981 – The AIDS virus is officially recognized.
