Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks Library and Museum


Rosa Parks, the "Mother of the Civil Rights Movement" was the guest of honor when Troy University dedicated its new library and museum. The library will carry Mrs. Parks' name and commemorates her refusal to give her seat up on the Montgomery City Bus to a white man. The incident occurred on December 1, 1955, at the site where the library is constructed and the museum depicts the event and the ensuing activities in the 381-day Montgomery Bus Boycott. Read more.
