Bus DIORAMA - Rosa Parks
RMM circa 1998
Civil-rights activist. Born Rosa Louise McCauley on February 4, 1913, in Tuskegee, Alabama. Her refusal to surrender her seat to a white passenger on a Montgomery, Alabama, bus spurred on a city-wide boycott and helped launch nation-wide efforts to end segregation of public facilities.
Museum visitors climb aboard the city bus that black civil rights activist Rosa Parks was arrested on 50 years ago in Alabama at Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. The bus, that was purchased and restored by the museum in 2001, is draped with a black and purple shroud to honor Parks who died in Detroit at the age of 92.

The arrest of Rosa Parks ignited the Montgomery, Alabama Bus Boycott where "Thousands of blacks refused to ride the city's buses as long as they remained segregated during the 381-day protest." (St. Louis American)
