As part of the celebration we will be launching the book: Rosa Parks: Beyond The Bus Life, Lessons, and Leadership by H.H. Leonards.
H.H. Leonards is a wife, mother of three, founder of O Museum in The Mansion, and co-founder of 51StepsToFreedom.org located in DC. Mrs. Rosa Parks called The Mansion her home-away-from-home for over a decade.

Mrs. Parks’ message is as urgent today as it was in 1955.
Beyond the Bus is about having faith in yourself to do the hard work to change hearts and minds and to have the courage to fight for the rights of all others: Black, White, religious, non-religious, men, women, children, gay, transgender.
She believed the laws can change but if you don’t change peoples hearts nothing changes. Love is all that matters.

Join us to help O Museum continue our important work to promote human rights, address disparities, and inspire understanding.

Proceeds support the arts & social justice programs at O Museum.
