Henry Ford Museum: Rosa Parks Bus

On Dec. 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on this bus and was arrested for violating segregation law. Her arrest sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott, which lasted for 381 days until segregation on public buses was repealed. Parks’ stance and the boycott were important events that raised awareness for the civil rights movement. Today, the bus is preserved at the Henry Ford Museum. In this model, board the bus and take Parks’ seat in the third row on the left. (Matterport)
