If you're asking about the Montgomery, Alabama, bus boycott, it lasted 381 days, from December 5, 1955 until December 20, 1956.The boycott was originally planned to take place only on December 5, 1955, as a protest against Rosa Parks' December 1 arrest for refusing to give her bus seat to a white man. The leaders of the boycott, including Martin Luther King, Jr., decided to use the African-American community's economic power to pressure the city into integrating the buses. When African-Americans stopped riding local buses, the company's income dropped 80%.Meanwhile, Rosa Parks filed an appeal of her arrest in the state courts, and a group of four other women filed suit in the federal courts. A US District Court in Alabama tried the case (Browder v. Gayle) and declared segregation in public transportation unconstitutional. The US Supreme Court agreed in a decision released November 13, 1956. The US District Court ordered the city to integrate its buses on December 20, 1956, bringing a satisfying end to the boycott.
