The Montgomery Bus Boycott Jadyn Haider

The event took place in the Alabama town, Montgomery. The boycott lasted 380 days, going from December 5, 1955 until December 20, 1956.

The goal of the boycott was to stop segregation on busses. It was also the start of changes in Civil Rights and more equality between races.

The people involved in the Montgomery Bus Boycott were African American people and the famous, Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks was arrested on a Montgomery bus because she wouldn't give her seat up to a white man. She was a very important to this event, not just because she made it happen, but because it made an impact on Civil Rights and started a movement.

Rosa Park's arrest was the spark of the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

The people who boycotted had to figure out how to get to work, the store, and other places they may need to travel to. To overcome this obstacle, the boycotters walked, biked, and found rides from strangers.

These images show different ways the boycotters overcame the obstacle of ways to travel.

The event completely changed Civil Rights and the change is still relevant today. African American’s and White people all have the same rights. Segregation is no longer an issue in the United States.

A Day Without Immigrants is a boycott that took place on February 16, 2017.

The Montgomery Bus Boycott is connected to A Day Without Immigrants because both of the events were to show specific people that they are needed. The purpose of A Day Without Immigrants was to protest and boycott to show the importance of immigrants and to protest President Trumps plan to build a wall between the United States and Mexico. This relates to the Montgomery Bus Boycott because they are both boycotts and they are both protesting to give different races the freedom they deserve.

Similarly, the Montgomery Bus Boycott and A Day Without Immigrants both were big events that led to closed businesses. The bus boycott made an impacts on the bus business and the day without immigrants closed restaurants, stores, and schools. I had a personal experience going to a closed restaurant because I was unaware of the day at the time
