ROSA PARKS BUS BOYCOTT
On December first, 1955, Rosa Parks took the Montgomery City bus home from work. She decided to sit right behind the section reserved for whites. When the bus began filling, and the seats were running out, the bus driver was persistent in having Rosa and the few other blacks she was sitting with to give up their seats, so a white man could have it. Rosa Parks was big on racial equality, therefore she simply refused to give up her seat. She was arrested for violating the "Jim Crow Laws." Later on, Civil rights workers got the laws outlawed in bus transportation. Rosa Parks refusal to give up her seat shows the determination that the black citizens had to receive the equality and treatment they deserved, and did not mind risking it all for that.
