The Montgomery Bus Boycott was a year long protest in Montgomery, Alabama. And this spurred the Civil Rights Movement and this led to a 1956 Supreme Court decision that they declared the buses' would be desegregated not only in Montgomery but throughout the United States.

The purpose of this protest was to end racially segregated seating in 1955 and after a year of carpooling, taking taxis, and walking the corrupt streets in Montgomery, they finally won their fight to end desegregation on buses'.

I hope this helps!
