Everyone has heard of the legendary Rosa Parks, a woman whose singular action of refusing to move to the back of the bus was a catalyst for the Civil Rights movement, but you've likely not seen her story presented in quite this way. Take a ride through history at the JFK Library and Museum with Flying Ship Productions as they present a musical play about Rosa Parks, an ordinary woman who became a civil rights heroine. Learn the real story behind Ms. Parks' historic moment, and enjoy the musical tunes of "Rosa's Ride." The show is part of the museum's "Celebrate!" series of performances appropriate for family audiences and children ages 5 and up. Each show highlights America's rich cultural diversity through the arts. Space is on a first-come, first-served basis, and reservations are required. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Wed, Feb. 20, 10:30 a.m. Free. Ages 5 and up. Performance takes place in the Stephen E. Smith Center at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, Columbia Point, Boston. www.jfklibrary.org
