On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery, Ala., city bus. That courageous act helped spark the Civil Rights Movement. Take it forward on February 4, 2013 as The Henry Ford celebrates Rosa Parks’ 100th birthday as a National Day of Courage.

The day-long celebration taking place inside Henry Ford Museum will feature nationally-recognized speakers, live music, and dramatic presentations.

Wayne State History professor Danielle McGuire is one of the National Day of Courage speakers.
