Free event and parking. More Info: HistoryComesAlive.org or 864-244-1499
Join an audience that loves talking back to history to discuss Rosa Parks – with Teresa Cosby, Furman University Associate Professor of Politics & International Affairs.
Sometimes when the status quo needs to be shaken up, it is necessary to take a stand. Other times, one must courageously take a seat. Rosa Parks is best known for being arrested for sitting in the wrong bus seat. But Parks was not an apolitical, middle-aged lady whose fatigue kept her seated. Hers was an act that radically challenged America to reinvent itself.
This event is NOT a costumed performance. Rosa Parks will be performed by Becky Stone in the Chautauqua History Comes Alive Festival (June 12 – 21.)
