Storyboard Text

  • 75% of the bus riders were black but they all have joined the boycott, so the bus company is losing money. Executives belive that protestors will come back to riding the bus because majority are poor and are supporting large. Meaning they cannot miss work. African-Americans get used to other forms of transportation
  • White shop owners were losing money as well as African-Americans were now shopping closer to their home. White shop owners began harassing as well as threatening people involved in the boycott of buses. The protestors listened to what MLK told them about not using violence
  • The bus company is forced to cut back on the number of buses serving that city, Montgomery. The fee of a bus ride went up from 10 cents to 15 cents.
  • As the boycott rolls along, harassment gets worse. Protestors receive things such as threatening phone calls and tickets for unnecessary reasons. As well as their homes were being vandalized
  • If you don't stop boycotting the bus...
  • When MLK gets home, he learns nobody is hurt. His supporters, who are around his house want to fight. MLK tells the people, "We can not solve this problem with retaliatory (revengeful) violence... We must meet violence with nonviolence."
  • One day, when MLK was at a church meeting, a bomb exploded at his home. This was while his wife, Coretta Scott King, 2-month-old daughter Yolanda, as well as a friend were in there. 
  • This bombing would unsuccessfully fail to stop protestors. This incident, brought them together. Almsot one full year after Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat, Supreme Court Rules- on Nov. 13, 1956, that Montgomery segregation laws were illegal
  • The next day, Rosa Parks, E.D. Nixon and Martin Luther King Jr. enter a city bus and joyfully and happily Rosa Parks takes a seat right at the front.
