Irving Black Arts Council: Take the Bus at Irving Arts Center
Program features the unveiling of the 2017 USPS Heritage Stamp by Irving Postmaster Rodney Malone and “Take the Bus”, presented by Earnestine Rose. “Take the Bus” is an insightful play about Claudette Colvin, the teenager who refused to give up her seat on a segregated Montgomery bus nearly nine months before the famous Rosa Parks ride. It was Claudette’s case, along with three others, that was heard by the Supreme Court, leading to the end of bus segregation in the U.S.
