chautauqua day 2 flyer Wednesday, May 29th — Rosa Parks (1913-2005)

Rosa Parks is often called the “Mother of the Civil Rights Movement.” She was an ordinary person who did extraordinary things and is well know for her pivotal role in the Montgomery Bus Boycott. She encouraged other ordinary citizens and youth to lift their voices for freedom. Rosa never expected to receive a national and global platform from which to speak, but the cause of freedom was most important to her.

Ms. Vanessa Adams-Harris is a Mvskoke (Creek) American Indian with African/Scots-Irish ancestry, educated in anthropology, and trained in theatre at the University of Tulsa. She is an artist, filmmaker, playwright, human rights activist and peacebuilder. She will portray Mrs. Parks.
