In the 1950s, buses in most cities were segregated: white passengers sat in the front, and black passengers sat in the back. Bus #2857 in Montgomery, Alabama, was an ordinary public bus until a woman named Rosa Parks, who had put in a long day as a seamstress, was arrested for refusing 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. Meanwhile, lawyers battled in court to challenge segregation laws. Here is the story of a bus — from the streets of Montgomery to its present home in the Henry Ford Museum — and the passengers who changed history.
