Darius Rucker and Mark Bryan of Hootie & The Blowfish along with some additional GRAMMY winning surprise guests will sing a few songs in celebration of Mrs. Rosa Parks. Tour Mrs. Parks D.C. Home-Away-from-Home; The Mansion on O & O Street Museum.
This new exhibit will focus on things people don’t know about her – like her 10 year residence O Museum in The Mansion, in Washington, D.C. Although Mrs. Parks is famous for being the mother of the civil rights movement, her activism and personal history is also a part of the underpinnings for today’s women’s movement.
