Montgomery Bus Boycott

By: Damien Collins

Purpose

The reason we are refusing to ride the public buses is because we are tired of being segregated as an African American and being put in the back of the bus. We are trying to make buses become unsegregated.

Leaders

Two of our leaders in the boycott are Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks. Rosa parks sat in the front of the bus and got arrested when she removed to move to the back. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the biggest influences trying to stop racism.
