Overview

The Story of Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott in Photographs by David Aretha

In Montgomery, Alabama, segregation was a way of life for African Americans. Rosa Parks, riding the bus after a long day of work, was tired of it. When the bus driver demanded she leave her seat for a white man, Parks refused. The police arrested her. Parks's courage ignited a boycott of Montgomery's buses, one of the great protests that sparked the Civil Rights Movement. Through dramatic primary source photographs, author David Aretha explores this pivotal moment in American history.
