Capital Cool

The Cool Factor

  • 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.
  • Paddles Up!…the Montgomery Dragon Boat Festival was the first in Alabama and is now the largest Dragon Boat Festival east of the Mississippi and one of the largest attended festivals in the River Region.
