Boycotts By Sawyer

A boycott is a withdraw from commercial or social relations with (a country, organization, or person) as a punishment or protest.

The Montgomery Bus Boycott was started from the inspiration that Rosa Parks created by refusing to yield her seat to a white man on a Montgomery bus in December 1 1955. Four days later the Bus Boycott was sparked.

"The Montgomery bus boycott, a seminal event in the Civil Rights Movement, was a political and social protest campaign against the policy of racial segregation on the public transit system of Montgomery, Alabama."

This Video is the events up to the boycott and the boycott. What is the main event that starts the boycott. How do people react to this event.

This boycott was extremely efective. Most boycotts take longer them just 1 month. The Montgomery boycott lasted 381 days. The black community worked together to compleate this enormous task.

As we walk our feet become more sore and our souls become more tired, but we know that we have the strength to finish.

"to gain justice on the buses in the city" Marten Luther King J.R.

Marten Luther King J.R. talks to the people about what they need to do to gain justice. This quote was in his speech before the boycott. It was the speech that got people thinking.
