Excuse me! This black woman has refused to move to the back and give me her seat!
I don't see why I can't have the same rights as this man! I was here first!
Montgomery Bus Boycott
My dream is to one day be in the circus. Don't you want everyone's dream to come true?
Just look at the face of this baby!
Black lives matter!
At the time of the Montgomery bus boycott, there was segregation and all sorts of laws were passed. one of which is the bus laws like the one when black people had to give up their seat to white people if the white people needed a seat.
Join the march!
One day, a black woman named Rosa Parks made history. She refused to give up her seat after asked to move by a white man who needed a seat. She was then arrested and that's when the Montgomery bus boycott began.
Several black people were not happy with the arrest of Rosa Parks, but some of those several people were really not happy. One of which was a man named Martin Luther King Jr. You may now recognize his name as an abbreviation, MLK. Anyhow, MLK and some of those black people who really weren't happy with the arrest, formed a boycott that soon became the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
It was not easy, they didn't just fight for their right and poof, they got em. Blacks went through torture, death, jail, and even more.
