Trailside Talk Features Rosa Parks In Celebration of Black History Month in Union County

Union County residents and visitors have the opportunity to “meet” Rosa Parks in a first-person interpreter presentation by Alexandra Ford of the American Historical Theatre.

Officials say the event is free and is made possible by funding from the New Jersey Council for the Humanities.

“The story of Rosa Parks is a reminder that individual actions can lead to extraordinary change,” said Freeholder Chair Alexander Mirabella. “The Freeholder Board is very proud to help keep her legacy alive through this special presentation.”

The program will take place on Thursday, February 13, from 7:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. at Union County’s Trailside Nature and Science Center, located at 452 New Providence Road in Mountainside. Ample free parking is located at the site.

Attendees must be adults age 18 or older or high school students.

Space is limited and pre-registration is recommended through the Trailside Talks link on the Union County activities online registration website, https://secure.rec1.com/NJ/union-county-nj/catalog (scroll down for the Trailside Talks link).
