The Panama City Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) is honored to host two traveling exhibits from Troy University’s Rosa Parks Museum in February in conjunction with Black History Month.
“The Legacy of Rosa Parks” exhibit examines the story of Rosa Parks who, like the many other African Americans in her community of Montgomery, Alabama, decided the time for change was long overdue. However, it would take courage, teamwork, strategy and endurance to overturn the stronghold of Jim Crow.
The other traveling exhibit, “The Women of the Movement” exhibit tells the heroic stories of Jo Ann Robinson, Aurelia Browder, Claudette Colvin, Mary Louise Smith and Lucille Times, among others, while also highlighting important grassroots political organizations such as the Women’s Political Council.
The exhibits will be on display at City Hall on February 8th through February 22nd. City Hall is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The City is taking temperatures of all individuals who visit City Hall. Masks and hand sanitizer are also available at the entrance.
