On 12/01/1955, in Montgomery, AL, Rosa Parks refused to obey bus driver's order to give up her seat in the colored section to a white passenger. Parks was not the first person to resist bus segregation. Bayard Rustin 1942, Irene Morgan 1946, Sarah Louise Keys 1952, & the members of the ultimately successful Browder v. Gayle lawsuit (Claudette Colvin, Aurelia Browder, Susie McDonald, and Mary Louise Smith) who were arrested in Montgomery for not giving up their bus seats months before Parks.
