Montgomery Bus Boycott

By: Ali Alamri

Why we're boycotting buses

This boycott is being conducted from December 5, 1955 till December 20, 1956 in response to the arrest and charge of Rosa Parks, an African-American lady who fought bus segregation by refusing to give up her seat to a white man.

She was arrested and fined, and in response the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) organized a bus boycott in support of Rosa and racial equality.

Martin Luther King Jr. (shown above to the right of Rosa Parks) is an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights movement. He is best known for his active role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs.
