Naples "The Rosa Parks House Project " at Palazzo Reale until  January  6, 2021. (Written by Antonio Castaldo)

 

In Naples, the " The Rosa Parks House Project ", the installation "Almost Home" by the American artist Ryan Mendoza, will remain on free display until 6 January 2021 in the central courtyard of the Palazzo Reale where it is on display from 15 September 2020. As in the images taken by the sociologist and journalist, Antonio Castaldo, with the participation of Alberto Livorno and the dog Marek, edited by Giuseppe Pio Di Falco for IESUS, the European Institute of Human and Social Sciences https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adq8hJgb5EA&feature=youtu.be.

The initiative was carried out with the support of the Campania Region, in collaboration with the Regional Directorate of Campania Museums, the Morra Greco Foundation which for this reason went outside to present the "Almost Home - The Rosa Parks House Project". The house of Rosa Parks, the symbol of the civil rights movement in the United States of America, was originally located in Detroit and was acquired by Rhea McCauley, Parks' niece, and in 2016 it was taken over by the artist Ryan Mendoza, who, in order to save it from abandonment, put it back together in the garden of his house in Berlin.

Rosa Louise McCauley born in Tuskegee, February 4, 1913 and died in Detroit, October 24, 2005 in the USA, married to Raymond Parks, on December 5, 1955, was traveling on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, occupying one of the seats after a day's work, sitting in fifth row on the left, for the "Black people", in the discrimination between whites and blacks. She did not give up their place to a white man who remained standing. She stayed silent, immovable, in repeated gesture, and the immediate intervention of the police took her away, for violation of local regulations on the racial arrangement of seats on public transport. This event marked the start of the boycott of the use of buses by the community of blacks in Montgomery. In 1957, Rosa Parks moved to Detroit Michigan with her husband Raymond, to share the mission of John Conyers, the African American representative of the United States, while Rosa and Raymond continued their work with the NAACP to improve the lives of African Americans. In 1977, when her husband Raymond died, Rosa Parks founded the "Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self-Development," in support of Pathways to Freedom, an annual summer program for teenagers.

In 1996, President Bill Clinton awarded her the "Presidential Medal of Freedom" and in 1999 she also received the Congressional Gold Medal. Rosa Parks died in 2005 at the age of 92 receiving an honor reserved for the Presidents of the United States: her body, the only woman and second African American person in the history of the United States, was exhibited in the Capitol.

On April 18, 2012, President Barack Obama, after a demonstration in Dearborn, Michigan, paid homage to her by sitting on the famous "Rosa Parks Bus" in the fifth row on the left, occupied by the resistant Rosa Parks on December 5, 1955.

Rosa was sentenced for that crime to a fine of 10 dollars while the protest, that historic day of December 5, 1955, resulted in the abstention from the use of public transport and the audience of 20,000 black users was reduced to 12 travelers. The relentless defeat of racial segregation in the US began.

On July 2, 1964, the federal law “Civil Rights Act” entered into force. Since then in the United States of America, disparities in registration in elections and racial segregation in schools, in the workplace in public structures in general have been declared illegal.
