Library Display: Montgomery Bus Boycott

Come see the library's latest display, titled Martin Luther King Jr. and the Montgomery Bus Boycott!

This collection highlights items saved by Maude Ballou who served as Dr. King’s first secretary from 1955 to 1960. The original typewritten pages of King’s address at the First Annual Institute on Non-Violence and Social Change on December 3, 1956, titled “Facing the Challenge of a New Age” are available for viewing, as are other materials related to the bus boycott.
