National Day of Courage
February 2, 2015 (9:30am-5pm)
Celebrate America at its finest as we honor the memory of Rosa Parks and how she reshaped history. Be inspired. And dare to inspire others.

The National Day of Courage celebrates the memory of Rosa Parks, who helped spark the modern civil rights movement in 1955 when she refused to give up her seat on a city bus. It’s a moment that etched itself in America’s moral history.

Here at Henry Ford Museum, it’s also an occasion to explore how Parks’ moral strength continues to resonate today. On this day, we invite national speakers to share their experience of courage to help inspire others to take a stand.
