Montgomery Bus Boycotts By: Adam Olson

The boycott began when Rosa Parks was arrested for not giving up her seat on December 1, 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama
The goal of the event was to have equal rights and get rid of segregation on buses by not riding them.
The boycott consisted of African americans and also martin luther king jr., who was a famous leader and speaker of equal rights.
Some obstacles they had to face where the police that were stopping them and also they had to find different ways of transportation.
The boycott made a huge impact and has a lasting affect today. It helped get rid of segregation and helped achieve equal rights.
One similar event that is happening today is the target boycott. People are refusing to shop there because of there transgender bathroom policy. They are alike because in both situations people are refusing to give the companies business for what they are doing. They will continue to boycott until they get what they want.
