Rosa Parks Bus
Rosa Parks Bus
I managed to find the story behind the history behind the Rosa parks Bus and what happened to it, after the 1955 event. The articles are a bit long, but I thought it would be interesting to share with others. It's an amazing piece of historical importance and almost unbelievable that it was kept safe and finally restored. You can board the bus and sit in the actual seat that Rosa parks did on that particular day, which lead to the Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1955/56. It's an actual physical connection to an important period of history. Aboard the bus, there's also a guide who tells you the brief history behind the event and is available to answer questions you might have concerning the event. Amazing ... On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks, a 42-year-old African American woman who worked as a seamstress, boarded this Montgomery City bus to go home from work. On this bus on that day, Rosa Parks initiated a new era in the American quest for freedom and equality. Mrs. Parks, who was an active member of the local NAACP, quietly refused to give up her seat. Her action was spontaneous and not pre-meditated, although her previous civil rights involvement and strong sense of justice were obvious influences. "When I made that decision," she said later, “I knew that I had the strength of my ancestors with me.” She was arrested and convicted of violating the laws of segregation, known as “Jim Crow laws.” Mrs. Parks appealed her conviction and thus formally challenged the legality of segregation. - I Found this article on the Henry Ford Museum. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The History of the Event - article found in Wikipedia. After a day at work at Montgomery Fair department store, Parks boarded the Cleveland Avenue bus at around 6 p.m., Thursday, December 1, 1955, in downtown Montgomery. She paid her fare and sat in an empty seat in the first row of back seats reserved for blacks in the "colored" section, which was near the middle of the bus and directly behind the ten seats reserved for white passengers. Initially, she had not noticed that the bus driver was the same man, James F. Blake, who had left her in the rain in 1943. As the bus traveled along its regular route, all of the white-only seats in the bus filled up. The bus reached the third stop in front of the Empire Theater, and several white passengers boarded. In 1900, Montgomery had passed a city ordinance for the purpose of segregating passengers by race. Conductors were given the power to assign seats to accomplish that purpose; however, no passengers would be required to move or give up their seat and stand if the bus was crowded and no other seats were available. Over time and by custom, however, Montgomery bus drivers had adopted the practice of requiring black riders to move whenever there were no white only seats left. So, following standard practice, bus driver Blake noted that the front of the bus was filled with white passengers and there were two or three men standing, and thus moved the "colored" section sign behind Parks and demanded that four black people give up their seats in the middle section so that the white passengers could sit. Years later, in recalling the events of the day, Parks said, "When that white driver stepped back toward us, when he waved his hand and ordered us up and out of our seats, I felt a determination cover my body like a quilt on a winter night." By Parks' account, Blake said, "Y'all better make it light on yourselves and let me have those seats." Three of them complied. Parks said, "The driver wanted us to stand up, the four of us. We didn't move at the beginning, but he says, 'Let me have these seats.' And the other three people moved, but I didn't." The black man sitting next to her gave up his seat. Parks moved, but toward the window seat; she did not get up to move to the newly repositioned colored section. Blake then said, "Why don't you stand up?" Parks responded, "I don't think I should have to stand up." Blake called the police to arrest Parks. When recalling the incident for Eyes on the Prize, a 1987 public television series on the Civil Rights Movement, Parks said, "When he saw me still sitting, he asked if I was going to stand up, and I said, 'No, I'm not.' And he said, 'Well, if you don't stand up, I'm going to have to call the police and have you arrested.' I said, 'You may do that.'" During a 1956 radio interview with Sydney Rogers in West Oakland several months after her arrest, when asked why she had decided not to vacate her bus seat, Parks said, "I would have to know for once and for all what rights I had as a human being and a citizen." She also detailed her motivation in her autobiography, My Story: “ People always say that I didn't give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn't t

CLICK ON THE PHOTO ABOVE TO SEE THE REST OF TODAYS PICTURES What a tiring day!!! Long story short---if that's possible. I started off with paperwork while Phil tended to Emma. Then it was time for Phil to come down with Emma...sign here,sign there and put his red thumbprint in places. For Emma they needed her red footprint. Lots of paperwork! Then it was time to meet the orphanage director. This was during Emma's nap, so Phil took her back to the room and I stayed. We received from the orphanage director (who is responsible for putting children in foster care as well) back the items that were in Emma's care package. We received the disposable camera which it looks like thefoster family has taken all the photos. We received a special gift...the bottle her foster mom has been using. Then it was off to the Civil Affairs office with our completed paperwork to finalize the adoption in the eyes of China. All in all...our day started early and didn't end till 5:00. While getting Emma dressed for the day we noticed something.........she's too big for almost all the clothes we brought! She has HUGE feet. We actually had to put her in one of the layers that she came to us in. Needless to say......shopping spree. Thanks, to Aunt Laura we stuffed her in the Denver Bronco's snowsuit and headed out the door. Next door to the hotel is a 7 story department store. The bottom 2 stories are a grocery store and the rest sells clothing and household items. Needless to say, walking into this store...we were noticed!! CCAI gave us things to wear around our necks that say who we are and what we are doing. When ladies we're following us around the store and wanted to know what was going on, I showed them this card. The card mentions that Emma is a girl, but dressed in an all blue snowsuit they questioned it. We said yes she's a "girl" and then showed them the 8 outfits we just bought most of them pink. So far Emma is "too good to be true". She is SO happy. People in our group have noticed how much she smiles. She is such a good baby. We're both kinda waiting to see if this is going to continue or what. She is warming up to me. As long as Phil is in the room I can hold her. She has to know where he is at all times. Tonight he was holding her and they were making faces in the mirror. She loved it! She's funny....I'll hold her and she'll squirm and whimper...so I'll pass her off to Phil. The second he holds her she looks at me with a huge smile! The next 3 days are time to relax and tour around. Tomorrow we are doing NOTHING! I may stay in my PJ's awhile. It's 8pm and Emma had to cry it out a couple of minutes tonight. She's snoozing away now. Think we're right behind her.......super tired. Tomorrow we'll give her a bath. Yes that's right....we still haven't given her a bath. She's used to a bath once a week. Ya she's a little stinky...but we were informed she hates baths and with sooo much going on...we want to keep her happy.
