Book Overview

Like all buses in Montgomery, Alabama in the 1950 s, Bus #2857 was segregated: white passengers sat in the front and black passengers sat in the backuntil Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white passenger. Her arrest sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott, a major event in the Civil Rights movement led by a young minister, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. For 382 days, black passengers chose to walk rather than ride the buses in Montgomery."
