On Dec 1, 1955 in Montgomery, Rosa Parks refused to obey bus driver James Blake's order that she give up her seat to make room for a white passenger.

Parks' action sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott, intended to oppose the city's policy of racial segregation on its public transit system. Later, United States Supreme Court declared that the Alabama and Montgomery laws requiring segregated buses as unconstitutional.
