Thanks!
Cara Fulton
10:19
I thought she lived a 20-minute walk away from work.
@MelissaHawker (she/her)
11:06
I understand the white man in the famous photograph was a journalist - I am guess that means the photo was a recreation?
Cara Fulton
11:09
Oh, That's far!
@MelissaHawker (she/her)
12:18
Thank you
@MelissaHawker (she/her)
20:21

Right!!
Molly Glenn
21:48
Right!
Cara Fulton
23:30
When did Bayard Rustin come to visit MLK and help tutor him in nonviolence? Before or after the bombing of his home?
@MelissaHawker (she/her)
28:06
How did they stop the car pool system?
@MelissaHawker (she/her)
30:10
I understand - thank you.
@MelissaHawker (she/her)
30:43
Wow - did not know that about Lloyds - amazing

31:12
No violence at least

31:46
OK. I take that back -- plenty of violence
Maggie Isley

RIP Rev
@MelissaHawker (she/her)

Go away, you bad policemen! - great quote
Tam

why did the boycott end?
Maggie Isley
35:49
Such an amazing tour!
Cara Fulton
36:38
97.7% of the BLM protests have been nonviolent, according to the Crowd Counting Consortium.
Maggie Isley
37:03
LOL Madeline, unless you’ve had Little Cesar’s. Then it’s not an ad.
@MelissaHawker (she/her)
37:05
Do you have a favourite or least favourite portrayal of Rosa Parks in popular culture?
Cara Fulton
37:14

Maggie Isley
38:13
Wait, not the BUS STOPS?
@MelissaHawker (she/her)
38:14
Do you know of any links between this boycott and the Bristol Bus Boycott in 1963?
Cara Fulton
38:27
It shows how non-violence is more effective than violence
Martine
38:45
very interesting! thank you!
Cara Fulton
39:01
You two are amazing!
@MelissaHawker (she/her)
39:30
Yes - the old 'My feet hurt' line as if that was the only reason!!
Molly Glenn
40:27
Love your tour. What is your favorite thing about working at the museum?
Cara Fulton
40:42
I like the line that says Rosa Parks "was thinking of that boy" referring to Emmitt Till when she refused to give up her seat.
Maggie Isley
40:49
Sarah’s doing amazing! Madeline is a personal friend and civil rights - and outspoken - role model!
Rosa Parks Museum

@MelissaHawker (she/her)
42:43
What is your favourite object in the museum?
@MelissaHawker (she/her)
43:05
Gosh - not taught in schools?!
@MelissaHawker (she/her)
43:17
Kids in the UK learn about Rosa Parks!
Maggie Isley
43:38
CLASSIC MADELINE
Cara Fulton
43:42
It's taught in schools now -- not necessarily well though.
Sharon Rizzo
43:53
Kids in NY learn about Rosa Parks at least in my school district.
Molly Glenn
44:15
Many of us are working to ensure that the right story is taught to our children.
Cara Fulton
44:46
See Teaching for Change for great lesson plans, especially their book "Putting the Movement Back into the Civil Rights Movement"
Maggie Isley
45:24
It is up north, where I am. They behave as if racism ended after Brown v Board

Geeky Museum Question - when visitors come do they always have a tour?
@MelissaHawker (she/her)
48:18
Or do people walk around?
Cara Fulton
48:33
Are folks in Montgomery involved in the BLM movement?
@MelissaHawker (she/her)
48:37
Yes Norfolk Museum Service - Thetford of Thomas Paine
Cara Fulton
48:53

Thanks!
@MelissaHawker (she/her)
51:02
The tour was amazing - I love the back and forth between you both and also the style of delivery. Thank you.
Cara Fulton
51:45
Are you guys working with Bryan Williams and his new facility?
Maggie Isley
52:00
I LOVED this tour style. I attended another virtual tour and it wasn’t delivered with the guide INSIDE the museum and it felt disconnected.
Cara Fulton
52:16
I see a connection with Rosa Parks and her work before the boycott
A
