In 1955, a bus driver in Montgomery, Alabama, ordered Rosa Parks along with three other African-American passengers to move to the back of the bus to make room for white passengers. Parks wasn't the first person to refuse to give up her seat on that bus system, however, as the secretary of the NACCP and a prominent member of the community, her subsequent arrest made her the ideal test case to get the court to rule bus segregation was unconstitutional. Get reintroduced to Parks through a new archive that reveals the woman behind the boycott.
