Summary
On December 1, 1955, one black woman refused to give up her seat in a "white's only" section of a public bus. The bus stops. Montgomery, Alabama stopped. In a time when resentment gave birth to rebellion and a gesture has the power to bring about change, Rosa Parks, by her single act, inspired the will to make history and helped make a leader out of Martin Luther King, Jr. This single act is considered the beginning of the Civil Rights Movement
