Title
Rosa Parks In Her Own Words: Exhibition Opening
Summary
Rosa Parks, the civil rights icon made famous for her refusal to give up her seat to a white man on a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama, in December 1955, is often mischaracterized as a quiet seamstress, with little attention paid to her full life story. A new Library of Congress exhibition, "Rosa Parks: In Her Own Words," reveals the real Rosa Parks was a seasoned activist with a militant spirit forged over decades of challenging inequality and injustice. Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden, Rep, John Lewis & other dignitaries formally opened the exhibition to the public.
