Henry Ford Museum

Greenfield Village, Michigan. We had a wonderful day here - so much to do and see! The bus in the second photo is the one in which Rosa Parks was riding in December 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama when she refused to give up her seat to a white passenger, thus sparking off the Montgomery Bus Boycott. We were able to go inside the bus and I sat in THE seat!! Rosa Parks has become such an well known icon of the civil rights movement, and her story is so well known, that it really gave me a 'shivery' feeling to be sitting there.
