The Montgomery Bus Boycott was probably one of the most known Boycotts because what it was trying to explain was that rosa parks was tired of having to go through the back of the bus after she had payed her money, she was tired of having to sit in the back of the bas, she was tired of not being able to walk down the aisle, and she was tired of having to give up her seat for a white person. This event occurred on December 1st, 1955 just four days before the boycott began. She was sitting on the bus and didn't give up her seat to a white man and she started questioning why she should have to give up her seat if she payed the same amount that they did and that's when she realized that it's not fair. The police came to the incident and she was arrested and fined. The boycott of public buses by blacks in Montgomery began on the day of her hearing and it lasted 381 days. A quote by Rosa Parks, "Two policemen came on the bus, and one asked me if the driver had told me to stand…He wanted to know why I didn't stand, and I told him I didn't think I should have to stand up. I asked him, why did they push us around? He said, 'I don't know, but the law is the law and you are under arrest." This quote showed how much she cared and how hard she wanted to fight for what she believed in.
