Script Details

Almost a century before Rosa Parks took a seat on a bus, Ellen Garrison, an African American teacher from Concord, challenged the nation’s first Civil Rights Act of 1866.

Ellen purposely took a seat in a segregated Maryland train station waiting room and was forcibly removed. Although her court case was eventually dismissed, she spoke up at a time when African Americans—and women—had limited rights.

Ellen was an activist from an early age. Like other women in Concord, she lent her voice and actions to protests and petitions for equal rights of all people.

As a teacher, she traveled often, granting her more freedom than other African American women of her time.

Ellen knew the effects slavery had on families. Her grandfather and father, both formerly enslaved, were among the first Africans to live in the area. She was well educated and driven.

And she fought for equality. In her own words, “I feel as though I ought to strive to maintain my rights.”
