Cool Story Ideas

FLOATING FUN…Montgomery’s Riverboat, the Harriott II, offers cruises for the whole family from dinner cruises to an afternoon blues cruise, even themed cruises for holidays. 

STAND IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF AN AMERICAN CIVIL RIGHTS LEADER … in 1965, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ended the Selma to Montgomery Civil Rights March at the Capitol steps just one block away from the only church and pulpit that he ever ministered from.

AN ACT OF COURAGE IN MONTGOMERY SPARKED A NATIONAL MOVEMENT …Montgomery is home to Mrs. Rosa McCauley Parks. Rosa Parks became a Civil Rights pioneer in Montgomery by courageously taking a stand and not giving up her seat which sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Troy University’s Rosa Parks Museum and Library is a tribute to that memorable movement.
