Rosa Parks, a Chautauqua Virtual event
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 refusing to give up her 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 free virtual talk will be presented online Tuesday May 4 at 7 p.m. by Greenville Chautauqua and Spartanburg County Libraries. Online registration required.
