The majority of bus riders were African Americans committed to the boycott. and they didnt have a sense of smell thoughtout the region of error. in 1956 there was a nobody who becAMCE SOMBODY THE END LOL

The boycott was not well received by the white people of Montgomery. There were instances of fire bombings, frequent arrests, and physical attacks on boycotters. City officials also attempted to force the end of the boycott by making cab fares comparable to bus fares illegal.

It helped lead to racial equality across America. Becuase lots of people protested and didn't use the Montgomery buses so the bus companies were losing money. In the end the law in montgomery was changed allowing black people to sit anywhere on the bus not just been allocated seats at the back.

To end segregation on buses. :) p.s the bus boycott wasn't hias idea, he just led it.

she sat on the bus and refused to get up and started the bus boycott

Civil rights activist Rosa Parks refused to surrender her bus seat to a white passenger, spurring the Montgomery boycott and other efforts to end segregation.

Thousands. The membership of the Montgomery Improvement Association (MIA), Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s organization to end segregation on Montgomery city buses has been estimated at 40,000-50,000. The 1956 African-American population of Montgomery was also estimated at 40,000, so the membership numbers may be somewhat inflated.

The purpose of the Montgomery bus boycott was to end racial segregation on the city bus system in a non-violent way, by creating economic hardship for the company. When African-Americans in the city of Montgomery, Alabama stopped riding the buses after Rosa Parks' arrest, ridership decreased by 80%. The bus company stubbornly held its ground, however, because they expected local police and politicians to disrupt the civil rights protest and dismantle the informal taxi system created by the African-American community. Both the city and the bus line hoped to coerce African-Americans into riding the buses instead of changing their segregation policies.The boycott finally ended after 381 days, when the US Supreme Court held segregation in public transportation is unconstitutional in the case Browder v. Gayle, (1956).

it showed that everyone was the same so people stop thinking differently of blacks and whites

Martin Luther King, Jr. was arrested during the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Rosa Parks was a cause for the initiation of the boycott. At one point, Dr. King's house was bombed. Eventually, the United States District Court ruling of Browder v Gayle resulted in the end of racial segregation on Montgomery buses. See the Related Link below for more information.

The case Browder v. Gayle, (1956) challenged the state of Alabama and city of Montgomery's segregation policy on intrastate bus travel that resulted in the 1955-56 Montgomery bus boycott. Although Rosa Parks was not a party to the case, her December 1, 1955, arrest for refusing to allow a white man to take her seat was the catalyst for both the boycott and the Browder case.The US Supreme Court affirmed the decision of the US District Court for the Middle District of Alabama in the case of Browder v. Gayle, on November 13, 1956, and declared segregation on buses unconstitutional. On December 20, 1956, the city of Montgomery received a court order mandating integration.Case Citation:Browder v. Gayle, 352 US 903 (1956)

Rosa Parks' was an important person because she would not give up her dream or her seat. She thought segragation should end. Also she was in the NAACP which is the National Associates for the Advanced Colored People and joined the Montgomery Bus Boycott with Martin Luther King Jr.

She began the bus boycott. She never came in touch with Martin Luther King Jr. but she helped end discrimination.

Start with your basic bus topology, where you have a beginning and an end of the network with however many nodes connected in series between. Now, add an identical bus network, except this time start from the other bus network's end and end at this other network's beginning. That's a dual bus topology. This simply provides a single, fail-safe mechanism to the normal bus topology.

Rosa Parks refused to change seats on a bus when her and one other person was on the bus. The law stated that she was to sit in the black section of the bus. When she refused she was arrested and fined 5.00 for breaking the law. King was a minister in a local church and he gave a speech on her arrest and it was decided that the African American community would boycott the buses. They did and for a year the boycott continued. The end result was the end to segregation on the bus system.

Her action led to one of the most important events in the civil rights movement in the US. On December 1, 1955, when Rosa Parks, a black seamstress, refused to cooperate with a segregation law. As she boarded a public bus in Montgomery, Alabama, she took a seat in the designated "black" rows in the back. When the bus filled up she was asked to move so that a white man could have her spot. She refused to give the man her seat and was then arrested. This event sparked what would become a national movement of resistance to racial segregation and discrimination. Local black leaders of the NAACP organized around Parks, who had been a member of the organization since 1943 and secretary for the local chapter. They decided to start a citywide boycott of the Montgomery bus system on December 5, 1955. The boycott lasted 382 days and was extremely effective as black citizens constituted about 75% of Montgomery's bus riders. But it wasn't until December 17, 1956 that the US District Court ruled on the case, Browder v. Gayle, which had challenged the Alabama state statutes and Montgomery, Alabama, city ordinances requiring segregation on Montgomery buses, and three days later the order for integrated buses arrived in Montgomery.

Nothing worked until Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat. The NAACP, organized black people to boycott the busses. The blacks walked and arranged rides rather then ride the bus. The U.S Supreme Court then ended the bus segregation, which led to more protests to end other segregation between blacks and whites.
