Ms. Parks, Your Bus Is Safe
Bejamin Greenberg posts an article
that everyone should read about what happened to The Bus after
Rosa Parks caused such a furor on it. I'll spoil the story: It was carefully hidden and saved for us, despite being shot at and vandalized by those who would rather Jim Crow had never fallen. It's in the Henry Ford Museum, and it's been restored. The article was written by the grocery store owner who persevered in holding the bus in trust for America, and who felt the time was finally right - so that fifty years after Rosa kept her seat, The Bus is Back.
