What is it?

When Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus to a white person, she was thrown in jail and the blacks began a boycott of the city's buses. This boycott that is happening right now, is said to last more than a year, proving the determination that the blacks have and they are going to stand up for what they believe in.

What else?

People are wondering what they can take to work or places they need to go, since they aren't taking the bus. How about a nice walk? Or what if someone you know has a car? Hitch a ride! Got a bike? That works, too! There are so many other options than taking the bus, you've just gotta think outside the box.
