The Montgomery Bus Boycott[edit | edit source]

Rosa Parks's bus was divided by race.

In Montgomery, Alabama in 1955, Rosa Parks got onto a bus. These buses were divided by race, with white people sitting at the front, and black people at the back. If the bus became full, a black person would have to give up their seat. When Rosa was asked to leave by the bus driver, she refused and was arrested.
