Bus Boycott Begins
In December 1955, Rosa Parks, a black seamstress in Montgomery, Alabama, refused to surrender her seat when she was ordered to by the bus driver. She was arrested. A citywide boycott of the bus company resulted. In december 1956, the Supreme Court ruled that segregation on public buses was illegal.
