Montgomery Bus Boycott By Kim Sosa

The Montgomery Bus Boycott started the day when rosa parks refused to give her seat to a white person. The author from History.Com it says ” When the white seats filled, the driver, J. Fred Blake (1912-2002), asked Parks and three others to vacate their seats. The other African-American riders complied, but Parks refused." This shows that rosa parks was willing to fight for her rights and stand up for herself. This protest happened in Montgomery Alabama against racial segregation in the bus system 1955-1956 …. History.Com also says "Alabama, to protest segregated seating, took place from December 5, 1955, to December 20, 1956" A couple days before that rosa park had just refused to give up her seat and was arrested due to that. But it didn't stop there, they wanted to accomplish something and till this day they got what they wanted, This event was trying to stop the racial segregation in bus system and see how it would effect them if only the whites road there buses The Montgomery Bus Boycott, in which African Americans refused to ride city buses in Montgomery, due to the fact that they avoided riding the bus they started to have a decrease of people that caused them to cancel bus routes. During this time many people where involved Males And Females that were african americans or against this segregation. A couple important people that where part of this was Rosa Parks, she was the main one to which why this started, she made a big impact she spoke up she defended her race and stood up for herself and didn't care about what the rest said or of what could happen and because of her people started to protest to end the unfair segregation. another very important person that made an impact to was “Martin Luther King Jr (1929-68), the 26-year-old-pastor of Montgomery’s Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, as its president, and decided to continue the boycott until the city met its demands"(Ashly Lutz) he put things in order. These people that where in the boycott had to face a lot of hate and discrimination based on their race separating by race on the buses and other things that impacted them but made some of them want to fight harder for that freedom. to over come these obstacles they fought for their rights and wouldn't take the bus systems. And many of the few white that road the buses were impacted as in it impacted the company's. They would cancel their bus routes due to losing money. At that point it was all about money. they wouldn't go on the bus till they changed this. Till this day i could say that it did make an impact and a long lasting change WE don't have segregation on the bus systems we can sit anywhere and be free to sit in the front and in the back no matter what race it is this made a big impact till this day and it have lasted. An event that recently happen that i could probably relate to this was people boycotting and deleting the uber app, not taking the uber "“People deleting the uber app and not taking an uber "The New York Taxi Workers Alliance called for all drivers to avoid John F. Kennedy International Airport on Saturday to facilitate protests against President Donald Trump's executive order barring travelers from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the US.” people didn't use the app or take the uber due to the protest and the reasons that they had" (Ashly Lutz).
