What one person can do is celebrated at the Rosa Parks Library and Museum, on the Troy University campus, in Montgomery, Alabama. Exhibits follow the life and times of Rosa Parks, including a replica of the public bus on which Parks, a “42-year-old African American seamstress,” refused to “yield her seat…to a white man” in December 1955. Four days after Rosa Parks was arrested and found guilty the Montgomery Bus Boycott began, led by the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. In 2005, the original museum and library expanded with a new children’s wing.
