The National Day of Courage commemorates the day in 1955 when Rosa Parks helped spark the modern civil rights movement. At Henry Ford Museum, it is also an occasion to explore how Mrs. Parks’ singular act of courage continues to resonate today. We invite people of courage to share their own experiences and continue to inspire others to take a stand.
