In Montgomery,
Alabama on December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks was
jailed for refusing to give up her seat on a public bus to a white
man, a violation of the city’s racial segregation laws.

The successful Montgomery Bus Boycott, organized by a young
Baptist minister named
Martin Luther King, Jr., followed Park’s
historic act of civil disobedience.
