When and Where and Why
December 5, 1955
When Rosa Parks refused to move from her seat for a local white man because her feet were tired from working all day, she was threatened to move or go to jail. She Chose jail. We need to stop this discrimination by boycotting all Montgomery buses. Our goal is to not take a bus for as long as possible.
