Montgomery Bus Boycott
By: Shania & Tiauna
Walk for Freedom!
On Decemember 5th, we will start a boycott against the busses to fight segregation. All african americans (who choose to participate) will walk until the rules are changed. We deserve equality as it's promised to us and we will fight for it. The only way to do this though it to walk. So we will began walking for our freedom. In doing this, the busses will lose profits and have no choice but to either change the rules or go out of business. We can do this if we all work together. I hope to enjoy your presence on our walk to freedom!

If you're unable to walk to work there are car-pools and another option would be to ride a bike.
Rosa Parks is a seemstress who has had a few issues involving segregational equality; or lack there of, on the bus. She has paid her fair and gotten off to get on in the back and the bus driver drove off without returning her money because he was angry and she had to walk home six miles. The most recent event is her arrest. She got on the bus and took a seat in the black section with three other african gentlemen. The bus began to fill up and the white section was moved back pushing the black section back as well. Soon after a white man got on the bus and the bus driver requested them to move and she refused. The driver proceded to tell her if she wasn't going to move he would call the police and she told him he could. When the cops arrived they arrested her, this mis-treatment is why we must boycott the buses.
Present Tense Prosepective
i think this was a very bold step during their time period and a marvelous decision. This just goes to show you can do anything you set your mind to if you just try. Without them equality would mean nothing and segregation would mean everything. They truley are heroes and give a whole differennt meaning to the saying "not all superhero's wear capes."
