Mrs. Rosa Parks Treasure Hunt and Tour
Presented by: O Street Museum Foundation

Built in 1892, this historic building and museum was the place Mrs. Rosa Parks — the mother of the civil rights movement — called home from 1994 to 2003 whenever she visited DC. Her brave defiance sparked a revolution when she refused to give up her seat on a segregated Alabama bus in 1955. Students will view a short video to learn about Mrs. Park’s life inside our walls, her work to champion others, and how she inspired us all. Then, in her spirit, they will work together to explore themselves, engage with each other, and experience how working as a team (respecting each others differences) helps us all be better people. Teams will decipher clues and search for items related to Mrs. Park’s life and work — visit her favorite rooms, and view mementos. At the end of their journey they will come together to discuss their experience.
