Gary Hylander presents Rosa Parks & the Montgomery Bus Boycott       


On December 1, 1955 a 42 year old African American seamstress named Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat for a white man and was arrested. Her actions led to one of the most significant acts of nonviolent protest in the American civil rights movement: the Montgomery Bus Boycott lasted 381 days and led to federal anti-segregation legislation.


Join us as lecturer and historian Gary Hylander leads us through this turbulent and exciting era in American history.
