Event Description

The bus boycott started because we aren't aloud to have the right to sit in the front of the bus and have the same freedoms as the white people. The purpose of the boycott is to have whites and colored people to have the same rights. We are trying to run the bus company out of business and to show the people in the United States that we people just like everyone else.
