The Montgomery Bus Boycott occurred in Montgomery Alabama in one of most rural parts of racism in the south, which was one of the many challenges they had to face as well as limited transportation and disapproval from the white people. They were able to overcome these challenges by staying true to their boycott and not taking the buses and supplying them with money, therefore forcing the bus companys to desegregate the buses However this boycott was not the first, a few years before this Africans Americans attempted to boycott buses in baton-rouge Louisiana which wasn't as effective as the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
After the arrest of Rosa Parks a civil rights activist, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Was brought in to lead the boycott along with other civil rights activists and 40,000 other African Americans.

The goal of the Montgomery Bus Boycott was to get rid of segregation and the term "separate but equal." It brought together thousands of African Americans to non violent protest which created history. It was was the first bus boycott successfully completed. The bus boycott brought out leaders from thousands of African Americans which lead the party's to success. The Montgomery Bus Boycott was significant because it was the first step to abolishing segregation and discrimination in America.
the Montgomery bus boycott was a 13-month mass protest that ended with the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that segregation on public buses is unconstitutional.
One modern day injustice is the amount of police officers shooting, injuring, and killing unarmed african americans for no reason.
Black Lives Matters protesters
This modern day injustice can be compared to the Montgomery Bus Boycott because in both cases African Americans are being targeted and being treated unequal. And in both situation people are protesting and fighting for equal rights.
