In Roanoke Rapids, public art tells the story of young Black woman’s refusal to move to the back of the bus in 1952 and the battle to dismantle Jim Crow transportation laws in the South that followed. A plaza in Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park celebrates this story in an artwork entitled “Closing the Circle,” which includes eight chronological mural panels and two bronze plaques.
