Tired Souls begins in Montgomery, Alabama on December 1, 1955—the day Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a city bus to a white man. Her determination was the catalyst that inspired Montgomery’s black citizens to abandon all travel on city buses until they were no longer forced to sit in the back or stand when a white person boarded. But there were others who came before Mrs. Parks and laid the groundwork for this pivotal moment. Tired Souls introduces audiences to Jo Ann Robinson, Claudette Colvin and others instrumental in pushing the civil rights movement and changing the course of U.S. history forever.
Admission Fee $9.
