Mike Wiley's Tired Souls: King and the Montgomery County Bus Boycott

Where
Gunter Theater at the Peace Center, 300 S. Main Street, Greenville [ Map ]
Description
Tired Souls opens in Montgomery, Alabama on December 1, 1955: the day Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a city bus to a white man. Her determination was the catalyst that inspired Montgomery's black citizens to abandon all travel on city buses until they were no longer forced to sit in the back or stand when a white person boarded. But there were others who came before Mrs. Parks and laid the groundwork for this pivotal moment. Tired Souls introduces audiences to Jo Ann Robinson, Claudette Colvin, and others who were instrumental in lighting a fire under the Civil Rights movement and changing the course of U.S. history forever.

Join us for a fascinating presentation about the geology of our area. This event is hosted by the local Sierra Club group and it's open to the public.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Enter from State Park Road, continue around the building to the back. Plenty of illuminated parking around the back entrance of the UU Fellowship. Go through the double doors, to hallway on the right to the fellowship hall. Easy.
