Because of the boycott and the social protests Montgomery removed the law of racial segregation on buses and public transportation. Which, was a small step to equality. Why did this action cause a movement of civil rights and cause Rosa Parks to go to jail for it?

When he was bailed out of jail he “saw to what extent the people among whom [he] lived could be trusted as good neighbors and friends” (Thoreau 1868) and was disappointed that they did not endeavor to cause political change.
