Spotlight On...
Black History Month

Join the National Women’s History Museum on Sunday, February 7th for a conversation commemorating Rosa Parks’ inspiring activism.

On a chilly night on December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks boarded a bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Instead of going to the back of the bus, which was designated for African Americans, she sat in the front. When the bus started to fill up with white passengers, the bus driver asked Parks to move. She refused, was arrested, and convicted of violating the laws of segregation. This moment transformed a single act of planned defiance into a defining moment for the modern American civil rights movement.

Join the National Women’s History Museum on Sunday, February 7th at 4:30pm ET as we welcome Dr. Brenna Wynn Greer, Knafel Assistant Professor of Social Sciences, Department of History at Wellesley College, for a conversation commemorating Rosa Parks’ inspiring activism on what would be her 108th birthday (February 4, 1913). Dr. Greer will present an overview of Parks’ complex, radical activism as a strategist and leader in the Civil Rights Movement.
