[November 13th marked the 65th anniversary of a key moment in the unfolding history of the Montgomery Bus Boycott. So this week I’ll AmericanStudy a handful of layers to that Civil Rights Movement activism, leading up to a weekend post on 21st century legacies and echoes!]
I apologize for
linking to Saturday Evening Post
columns for two posts in a row, but in truth most everything I’d want to say
about Rosa Parks, during but also before and after her vital role in the bus
boycott (which went way beyond keeping her seat on the bus)y, I said in this
December 2020 column on the 65th anniversary of her civil
disobedience. So once again I’ll ask you to check out that column if you could,
to see all the layers to this activist and legend around and so far beyond
Montgomery in 1955-56. Thanks!
Next bus boycott
PS. What do you
think? Sides to this history or histories like it you’d highlight?
