On Dec. 1, 1955, Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to relinquish her seat on a Montgomery city bus to a white male, a move that would spark the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
The Montgomery Bus Boycott represented the first large-scale U.S. demonstration against segregation, and Mrs. Parks became frequently referred to as the mother of the civil rights movement.
Today, Troy University’s Rosa Parks Museum stands on the spot of Mrs. Parks’ historic arrest. Located on the University’s Montgomery Campus, the museum opened on Dec. 1, 2000, with the mission of preserving and interpreting the story and lasting legacy of Mrs. Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott for future generations.
