The Montogomery Bus Boycott
The Montogomery Bus Boycott started on December 5th, 1955, and spanned 19 months. For 381 days black Americans refused to ride on any of the Montogomery Buses. It came about 4 days after Rosa Parks was fined for refusing to give up her seat to a white passenger. The boycott ended a year after it began when Montogomery was ordered by the Supreme Court to integrate the Bus System.
