You can still access the UC Berkeley Library’s services and resources during the closure. Here’s how.

Using the Library during COVID-19

Many of our services are now being offered in new ways. To find the latest information on course reserves, book returns, 24/7 online help, and more, visit our Library services and resources during COVID-19 page. The information on that page supersedes all other information on the Library website at this time.

Mighty Times: The Legacy of Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks' simple act of defiance on Dec. 1, 1955, against racial segregation on city buses inspired the African American community of Montgomery, Alabama, to unite against the segregationists who ran City Hall. Over the course of a year, the Montgomery Bus Boycott would test the endurance of the peaceful protestors, overturn an unjust law and create a legacy of mighty times that continue to inspire those who work for freedom and justice today. A project of the Southern Poverty Law Center. Producers, Robert Hudson; director Bobby Huston. 2002. 40 min.
