Storyboard Text

  • In 1955, there was a lot of segragation between black and white in the USA.
  • On the busses, white people entered in the front, and black people entered in the back of the bus.
  • If white people entered while the bus was full, black people had to give up their entire row so the whites could sit. 
  • Rosa Parks was sitting on a bus , but had to leave her spot because the whites did not like her prescence.
  • No!!!
  • Move!
  • Rosa Parks refused to move for a white person, and it started the bus boycott.
  • The boycott made the bus company loose a lot of money, and the government realised the segregation law in Montgomery was unconstitutional.
