Baker & Taylor
Describes the Montgomery bus boycott, which began when civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man, lasted 382 days, and led to the landmark Supreme Court decision ending segregation on Montgomery city buses.

Baker & Taylor
Recounts the story of Rosa Parks' refusal to give up her seat to a white passenger on Bus #2857 in Montgomery, Alabama, and her subsequent arrest, an incident that sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott, led by a young minister named Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a major event in the Civil Rights movement.

The story of the bus--and the passengers who changed history. Like all buses in Montgomery, Alabama, in the 1950s, bus #2857 was segregated: white passengers sat in the front and black passengers sat in the back. Bus #2857 was an ordinary public bus until a woman named Rosa Parks, who had just put in a long day as a seamstress, refused to give up her seat to a white passenger. Her arrest sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott, a major event in the Civil Rights moment, led by a young minister named Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. For 382 days, black passengers chose to walk rather than ride the buses in Montgomery. From the streets of Montgomery to its present home in the Henry Ford Museum, here is the remarkable story of a bus and the passengers who changed history.
