The Montgomery Bus Boycott was a political and social protest campaign initiated in December 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama. The protest opposed the city’s racially segregated public transportation system. The boycott was launched following the arrest of Rosa Parks on December 1, 1955. The protest brought national attention to the burgeoning Civil Rights Movement and the leader of the boycott, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
