The Story of the Montogmery Bus Boycott

The Story of the Montogmery Bus Boycott | Birmingham Campaign | Scoop.it

Montgomery Bus Boycott (1955) - This began with Rosa Parks refusing to sit in the back of the bus. The boycott's goal was to protest segregation in public buses.  It was an important civil rights event in that her personal actions gave strength to others to stand up to the inequalities faced.

Without the montgomery bus boycott I don't think the civil rights movement would of been as effective because the boycotting played an improtant part. This article makes me feel relived that people took a stand so that I can today sit wherever I like on a bus.
