MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WIAT) — Rosa Parks’ courage is uniquely displayed at Troy University’s Montgomery campus.

At the Rosa Parks Museum, you’ll find clips and props that take you back to a street corner with the bus where it all happened.

The museum is a major tourist attraction for Montgomery, especially this time of year.
