Walk On: The Story Rosa Parks
On Tuesday, February 4th, we attended the musical, "Walk On: Rosa Parks Story," presented by Mad River Theater Works at the Carlsen Center at Johnson County Community College. We learned about the life of Rosa Parks and what influenced her choice to not give up her seat on the bus that day...
In Montgomery, Alabama, a determined activist named Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a city bus. The resulting uproar launched the Civil Rights movement and changed our country forever. Walk On: The Story of Rosa Parks weaves together music and drama to tell the story of Rosa Parks and how the determination of one individual made all the difference in the struggle for freedom and equality in the United States.
