Montgomery Bus Boycott
Support Rosa Parks and Boycott Public Transportation
On December 1 Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give her seat up. We are asking all African Americans in Montgomery to boycott buses and public transportation. This boycott will help ignite the fire that we need. If we do this boycott, American views on African Americans will change. Equality will then exist.
