This event is a part of many events around the Memphis area by BLDG Memphis, the Sierra Club, MATA, and Memphis 3.0 that will lead up to Transit Equity Day on Friday, February 4. Transit Equity Day is celebrated on Rosa Park's birthday in honor of her refusal to give up her seat as a tactic to protest the unfair Montgomery transit system during the civil rights era.
