The Montgomery Bus Boycott

by Dennis Brindell Fradin
     
 

"I'm not walking for myself. I'm walking for my children and grandchildren." To protest a law that segregated blacks and whites on city buses, Montgomery's African-American citizens refused to ride them. Some carpooled, some walked each day to work and school. For many months in 1956, Americans watched the boycott that would spark the civil rights movements.
