WELCOME: Carla Hayden, Librarian of Congress
REMARKS: The Honorable John Lewis, Representative from Georgia
DISCUSSION: Fred Gray and Jane Gunter, Moderated by Michelle Miller, CBS News
The exhibition will immerse visitors in Parks’ words, reflections, handwritten notes and photographs, allowing her to tell her own life story. It is the first exhibition of Rosa Parks’ personal collection. The exhibition offers an intimate view of this seminal figure’s life – beyond her famous refusal to give up her seat to a white man on a city bus – to reveal the real Rosa Parks, a seasoned activist with a spirit forged over decades of challenging inequality and injustice.
