Storyboard Text

  • In December 1955, Rosa Parks was arrested for not giving up her seat for a white passenger
  • The NAACP decided to hold a bus boycott on the day of her arrest. In the days before social media, it was difficult to get information to the entire black population of Montgomery in a day or two, so they got the preachers to spread it.
  • Martin Luther King Jr. was looking out his window the morning of the trial, and was shocked to see so many empty buses.
  • People began walking to work, or carpooling. Some of them would get brought to work by their employers.
  • The police discovered an old, vague law that prohibited boycotts, and Martin Luther King and the other leaders were arrested.
  • Eventually segregation ended and the boycott stopped.
