Join an audience that loves talking back to history to discuss Rosa Parks  – with Teresa Cosby, Furman University Associate Professor of Politics & International Affairs. 


Sometimes when the status quo needs to be shaken up, it is necessary to take a stand. Other times, one must courageously take a seat. Rosa Parks is best known for being arrested for sitting in the wrong bus seat. But Parks was not an apolitical, middle-aged lady whose fatigue kept her seated. Hers was an act that radically challenged America to reinvent itself.


This event is NOT a costumed performance. Rosa Parks will be performed by Becky Stone in the Chautauqua History Comes Alive Festival (June 12 – 21.)


  • Occurs Tuesday, March 17th, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
