122.1 Rosa Parks and The Freedom Movement (from Slavery to Civil Rights)
Listen now
In honor of Juneteenth, we will be talking about "The Mother of the Freedom Movement" - Rosa Parks. Rosa made history when she politely refused to give her seat to a white passenger on a public bus in Alabama when institutionalized racial segregation existed in the South (Jim Crow Laws). Her story is one of courage; she'll make you want to stand up for what's right. Note: Juneteenth is on June 19th, and it's been a federal holiday in the United States since 2021. However, it's been a day of celebration for African Americans since 1865, when Texas, the last state with institutionalized slavery, abolished it.  It's a day to celebrate freedom and liberty, as well as to remember those who fought for it, like Rosa Parks.
