Rosa Parks started the Montgomery Bus Boycott.


On December 5th, 1955, Rosa Parks was sitting in the black section of the bus. The bus driver saw that there was a white man standing up. The bus driver told all four blacks in the front row of the black section to get up. Rosa Parks thought one man, four seats, I don't have to get up. The bus driver yelled at her, and eventually called the police. They arrested her. After that, she told every black person to not ride any of the city buses. That lasted longer than anyone thought it would, 380 days, fifteen days over a year.
