Montgomery Bus Boycott

On December 1, 1955 Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama to a caucasian individual, thus starting the 381 days of the Montgomery Bus Boycott. She and a handful of others including Jo Ann Robinson, an Alabama State Law Professor and civil rights activist who was waiting for an opportunity to institute a bus boycott, changed history forever because of their courageous actions.

Take a minute and check out this awesome website dedicated to this significant event in history.
