Rosa Parks| Montgomery Bus Boycott
In Montgomery, Alabama, December of 1955, Rosa Parks was coming to her home from a long day of work in the colored section of the Montgomery Bus, and was told to get up from her seat for a white man, she stood her ground and was arrested.
Rosa Parks used her only phone call to call her husband, and everyone knew about the arrest. Rosa was bailed out of prison, and everyone was enraged. E.D. Nixon, a family friend, convinced Rosa to start up a movement! Later known as The Montgomery Bus Boycott.
Nixon and a few Ministers took advantage of the angered civillians and formed The Montgomery Improvement Association. With Martin Luther King Jr. As their leader.
