Traveling exhibits share legacy of Rosa Parks, women of the Montgomery Bus Boycott

Troy University’s Rosa Parks Museum is helping to share the legacy of Parks and other women who played key roles within the Montgomery Bus Boycott through a pair of traveling exhibits.

The exhibits, “Tired of Giving in: Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott” and “Women of the Montgomery Bus Boycott,” were made possible by a grant the museum received from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The exhibits are now being made available for display in K-12 schools, universities, places of worship, public libraries and museums throughout the country.

The “Tired of Giving” exhibit will be on display at Satsuma Public Library, located at 5466 Old Hwy 43 from July 12 to July 30. It is available for public viewing from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. For additional information, contact Satsuma Library at 679-0700 or visit our website at satsumalibrary.com .

“The mission of the Rosa Parks Museum is to honor the legacy of Mrs. Parks and showcase the lessons of the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the many who stood firmly to bring about change,” said Donna Beisel, Assistant Director of the Museum. “We seek to do this by providing a platform for scholarly dialogue, civic engagement and positive social change, and we are pleased to be able to share the stories of these courageous women across the country through these traveling exhibits.”

The “Tired of Giving in: Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott” exhibit provides an overview of the life and activism of Mrs. Parks and the success of the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

“Women of the Montgomery Bus Boycott” utilizes oral history interviews, digitized archival material and court documents to tell the heroic stories of Jo Ann Robinson, Aurelia Browder, Claudette Colvin, Mary Louise Smith, Lucille Times, Susie McDonald, Virginia Durr, Georgia Gilmore, Coretta Scott King, Juanita Abernathy, Juliette Hampton Morgan and Jean Graetz. Important grassroots political organizations such as the Women’s Political Council will also be highlighted through the exhibit.

Each 12-panel exhibit contains graphics and text content, photographs and interactive exhibits that can be accessed through visitors’ smart devices. Educational resources such as lesson plans for teachers and a scavenger hunt will be available online.

We are excited to announce that Satsuma Public Library has installed a platform lift in the rear entrance of the library. This project has been in the works for over a year and the addition to the library will be a huge asset to patrons with disabilities or who have trouble with steps. This project would not have been possible without the support of Gulf Coast RC&D who donated $5,000 to support this project. Gulf Coast RC&D is a Non-profit organization who's mission is to promote, protect and develop natural resources to secure social and economic benefits for people in the Gulf Coast Area. Satsuma Library would also like to recognize the Satsuma Public Library Foundation who donated $4,500 towards this project and for their continued support.

 

Thank you to other key players, Satsuma Building Inspector, Tom Briand who assisted throughout this project and Tracy Nolfe who donated his time and talents! Thank you to all who support Satsuma Public Library Foundation! Because of you we are able to dream bigger for the community of Satsuma!

 

Above are photos of SPL Foundation founding member, Mary Deas Pierce enjoying the new platform lift.

Most Sincerely

Tiphani Clearman, Library Director
