Protests during this time was not uncommon. A major protest was The Montgomery Bus Boycott. This was when Rosa Pars (a black female) did not give up her seat to a white person. She was arrested for her act. The NAACP thought this is there time to try and get segregated laws out of the southern city's. The boycott was that no blacks would ride the bus. After a while after this started, many blacks were getting arrested for walking on the streets. They finally passed a law for no segregated laws.
From Selma to Montgomery was one of the biggest marches in the Civil Rights Movement time. Martin Luther King Jr. led a march that was 54 miles from Selma to Montgomery. There were many more blacks then whites in Selma but very few blacks were registered to vote. King lets marches to Selma to get more and more blacks to get registered.
