College Night: Honoring the Montgomery Bus Boycott, an Artistic Evening
As the City of Montgomery embarks upon a year long commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Montgomery Bus Boycott, there are many citizens who remember the efforts towards equality in public transportation led by the Montgomery Improvement Association in 1955 and 1956. At the same time, the next generation has reflected on the meaning of this important milestone in American history that occurred in our very city.
In partnership with the university and college community, the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts has organized an evening of creative celebration of the legacy of Rosa Parks and many others. They will host College Night: Honoring the Montgomery Bus Boycott, an Artistic Evening on Thursday January 21st from 5:30 - 10:00 p.m. With Trebled Soul from Alabama State University, Dr. Felicia Bell of the Rosa Parks Museum, performers from Huntingdon College, dancers from Tuskegee University, and more, the college community will offer a memorable tribute at the Museum. Dr. Bell will offer a historical introduction followed by performances.
Free and open to the public. For more information, call 334-240-4333.
