The Rosa Parks Museum’s annual educational summer day camp, "Architects of Change," is open to all Montgomery-area middle and high school students who will be entering grades 6-12 during the 2023-2024 school year. The mission of the camp is to share the techniques of non-violent conflict resolution used by Mrs. Rosa Parks, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other leaders of the early Civil Rights Movement. Our goal is to connect past struggles in the quest for equal rights to social justice struggles that continue today.
