Rosa Parks and the Bus Boycott

Start listening

65 years ago today, Rosa Parks was arrested for civil disobedience. She sat down on a bus and refused to give up her seat to a white passenger. The events of that day in 1955 started a yearlong Montgomery Bus Boycott and a civil rights movement. We are joined by Madeline Burkhardt, the curator of the Rosa Parks Museum.
