|Title:||[Collage commemorating Rosa Parks for her actions leading to the Montgomery bus boycott, 1955-56] [graphic] /|
Title devised by Library staff.
Collage clipping, bottom right reads: The year was 1955 and I was 42 years old. I was sitting in the colored section of the bus as usual, feeling tired after a long workday. When the bus got crowded the driver ordered the African-American passengers to give up their seats to the whites. I refused, and I was arrested. This was the start of a 381-day bus boycott by African Americans in Montgomery, Alabama. I had always worked for civil rights, but because of this famous action, I'm called "mother of the movement".
With 1 pg. report on the bus boycott signed by the student: Ikechukwu Nnaji, Feb. 15, 2005.
