In the rear of a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama, a quiet, courageous exercise of defiance sparked a movement. Black citizens banned together in a dignified rebellion that lasted 382 days – and later launched a modern movement for civil rights in America.
December 5, 2015 marks the 60th Anniversary of the start of the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
The footsteps of the citizens’ movement, sparked three decades ago, are forever imprinted on history. The annual commemoration honors every person who stood together for equality and justice; their uncommon courage has forever changed this nation.
