dec 1, 1955 - Rosa Parks doesn’t give up her seat
After a long day of work as a seamstress for a Montgomery, Alabama, department store, Rosa Parks boards a city bus to go home. She was asked to get up and move to the back because there was no more seats in the front which was for “whites only but Rosa Parks does not give up her seat to a white passenger and was arrested. This initiated the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
