She went to the back of the bus and sat where the blacks were supposed to sit. A white guy got on the bus and tried to get her to move because there were no seats left. She didn’t give up her seat so she got arrested and went to jail. This really helped to spark the Montgomery bus boycott.

This is significant because Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white American. Rosa Park's disobedience led to a series unanimous actions from the African American community. For example, The Montgomery Bus Boycott was started by Martin Luther King Jr because of Park's actions. The Montgomery Boycott was a unanimous agreement from all African Americans, stating that no colored person would ride a bus in the South to end seating segregation. This was the first large scale protest against segregation. As a result, The Supreme Court voted to end segregated bus in 1956. As other African Americans grew in knowledge over what was occurring, more joined in.

I am going to tell you about an enchanting story about a woman named Rosa Parks and her mongomery, bus boycott. Rosa Parks was born on February 4,1913 in Tuskegee Alabama U.S.A she died on October 24,2005 [age 92] in Detroit, Michigan U.S. before she got arrested for boycotting a montgomery bus Rosa Parks went to school like a normal child. She was raised up on her daddy's farm and raised as a normal girl but she did have to go to a different school then the white people in 1929 when she was in 11th grade she had to go out of school because her grandmother got sick and she had to help her.
The Mongomery Bus Boycott, which took place on December 5, 1956 and lasted until December 20, 1956. What this exactly was is when African Americans refused to ride city buses in Montgomery, Alabama, to protest segregated seating. The most prominant name of this time that made the boycott what it is today is Rosa Parks. On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks, an African-American woman, refused to give up her seat to a white man while on a Montgomery bus. Thus, resulting in her getting arrested and fined. After the fact, the U.S. Supreme Court in the end ordered Montgomery to merge its bus system. In the wake of this action, a affluent leader of the American civil rights movement emerged, that man is named Martin Luther King Jr.
Unbenounced to her, Rosa Parks’ refusal to give up her seat to a white man ignited one of the largest and most successful mass movements in opposition to racial segregation in history. At a time when African Americans experienced racial discrimination from the law and within their own communities on a daily basis, they saw a need for radical change and the Montgomery bus boycott helped push them closer to achieving this goal. Unfortunately, much of black history is already excluded from textbooks, therefore to exclude an event as revolutionary to the civil rights movement as this one would be depriving individuals of necessary knowledge. The Montgomery bus boycott, without a doubt, should be included in the new textbook because politically
Although the slavery was abolished in 1865, the rights given to African Americans were not nearly equal to those of white Americans. After slavery was abolished, inequality in American society ran high, and many laws were put in place to restrict the rights and abilities of African Americans. Some laws include the Jim Crow Laws (1870 to 1950s) and the Supreme Court Ruling of Plessy v. Ferguson (1896) that ruled that there could be “separate but equal” facilities and services for people of color and white Americans. These policies and laws were unfair and discriminatory towards people of color and change was desperately needed. The Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1955 to 1965 pushed the Civil
Montgomery Bus Boycott- In Montgomery, 1955, blacks were forced to sit in the back of the bus. One day Rosa Parks, a true hero, said no when asked to move to the back of the bus. She was arrested and that is when the boycott started. African American Men and Women didn’t ride the bus for more than a year. They started a boycott team which was led by Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr., and many other people joined. The Supreme Court had to ratify the law because African Americans rode the bus a lot which made the bus business fail when they stopped riding. Everyday blacks rode bikes or walked.
Trough out the 1960, the goal for racial became priority for many Afro-Americans who suffer from segregation or also called Jim Crow. After the Plessy v. Ferguson Supreme Court decision in 1896, all Afro-Americans will need to obey the law that stated separation of facilities or known as “separate but equal”. Since the 1900s, association like the NAACP fought for the equality in education, politics and economy in America between the races, in 1960 the nonviolent propaganda became a way to stop the segregation and start living as the constitution stated, with equality and freedom (Document 1).

Rosa Parks’ actions would alter the dynamics of the Civil Rights Movement in ways that were previously unknown before. In 1955 Rosa Parks refused to give her seat up to the white passenger. This event became known as the Montgomery Bus Boycott because it caused an uproar in the community. It is important because the entire African American community in Montgomery, Alabama united behind Rosa Park and supported her by boycotting the bus system. African Americans chose to walk to work or car pool with each other rather than ride the bus. The boycott lasted for a total of 381 days, which was crippling to the local economic system. Because of the constant conflict and pressure that were a result of this, in November of 1956 the Supreme Court ruled to omit segregation on the Montgomery bus.
