Montgomery bus boycott
by candice waikel
We boycotted the Montgomery bus, because we felt it was not right to have separate seating on the bus. it was against our rights. We intend for the busses to allow us to sit anywhere we would like, and first come first serve, I shouldn't have to get up for a man to take my place.
during the boycott they selected Martin Luther King Jr. to be the leader he promoted non violence actions.
She refused to give up her seat to a white man. was arrested and jailed for her actions.
other ways to get around
they would walk.
or take African American taxis that cost just as much as bus fare
