She went to Fort Valley State college. Then, she became an English professor at Alabama State college. In 1949 she sat in the 5th row of a bus in Montgomery. (the first 10 rows were reserved for white people only) The bus driver verbally attacked her and she ran off the bus. In 1950 she became the president of the Women's Political Council (WCP) where she focused on bus arrangements for blacks. After Rosa Parks was arrested in 1950, she made flyers to announce a day long bus boycott in Montgomery. On December 5, 1950 the bus boycott began. The boycott lasted for over a year instead of one day. After her involvement with civil rights, she went back to being a teacher. She moved to Los Angeles where she continued to teach until her retirement in 1976. She died in 1992.


King first achieved national renown when he helped mobilise the black boycott of the Montgomery bus system in 1955. This was organised after Rosa Parks, a black woman, refused to give up her seat on the bus to a white man - in the segregated south, black people could only sit at the back of the bus. The 382-day boycott led the bus company to change its regulations, and the supreme court declared such segregation unconstitutional.

D. Nixon, President of the Montgomery chapter of the NAACP.On December 4, they called a meeting of community leaders to discuss holding a one-day boycott of the Montgomery City Lines, Inc., bus company. During the meeting, the group formed a new alliance, the Montgomery Improvement Association (MIA), to which Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was elected Chairman and President.

The Montgomery Bus Boycott was a protest by the African-Americans about the buses in the Montgomery area. The buses had a policy that white people sat at the front and African-Americans sat at the back. The African-Americans were angry because they couldn't walk through the White's 'zone' and that they had to pay at the front of the bus, get out of the bus and then get back in through a rear door. Sometimes the bus driver would drive away before they could get back in. The start of it began when outrage occurred when Rosa Parks, an African-American woman, was arrested for not giving up her seat for a white man. (She was next to the window, so there was space). African-American Leaders got together and said to the African-American population to boycott (not use) the buses for a day, but it was more of a success than they thought it would be. The boycott lasted for 381 days (a bit more than a year), until the US Supreme Court said segregation on buses is unconstitutional and ordered a change.
