Thanks to support from a number of beneficiaries including WaterFire Providence and the Nash Family Foundation along with a wide outpouring of public support from members of the Providence community, the Detroit house Rosa Parks had taken refuge in after the tumultuous 1955 bus boycott has returned home to America. Ryan Mendoza’s “The Rosa Parks House Project” is an art installation that honors Rosa Parks and the struggles she faced due to her courageous leadership in the civil rights movement. The artwork was created with the support of the nieces and nephews of Rosa Parks and includes recreations of remembered details of her stay with them in that house.
