In partnership with the Rosa Parks Library and Museum, the MMFA welcomed students from Alabama State University, Auburn University at Montgomery, Huntingdon College, and Tuskegee University who presented Honoring the Montgomery Bus Boycott: An Evening of Artistic Celebration in the MMFA Wilson Auditorium.
After a historical introduction by Donna Beisel of the Rosa Parks Library and Museum, Montgomery’s university and college community lauded the efforts of Rosa Parks and others towards freedom through art, song, dance, literature, and reflection – representing the power of art and the vital role of art as a reflection of society.
The Museum is grateful to our partners and performers:

“I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.” ~ Rosa Parks
