Rosa Parks…

phrgBeckyStoneAsRosaParksOn Feb. 25, a large group of students at Colorado Northwestern Community College in Rangely attended the Black History Live Tour starring Becky Stone as Rosa Parks. There was also a performance on the CNCC Craig Campus earlier in the day. In her show, Stone spoke with students and answered their questions in character regarding Parks, her part in the civil rights movement and her participation with Martin Luther King Jr. in suffering through the devastating Jim Crow laws directed at all black citizens in Alabama and the country in the ’50s and ’60s. Stone began playing the role of Parks several years ago and continues to work with Colorado Humanities for performances around the state. The presentation was part of February’s Black History Month.
