  • Rosa Parks was arrested in Montgomery, Alabama on December 1, 1955, as a result of an Alabama law that required African Americans to give up their seats to whites if the bus was full.
  • Rosa Park’s spontaneous efforts prompted the local Black community leaders to organize the Montgomery Bus Boycott, led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The boycott lasted almost a year and ended only after the United States Supreme Court declared the bus segregation illegal.
  • Rosa Parks became a nationally recognized symbol of dignity and strength in the campaign to end racial segregation over the next half-century
