...Bus Boycott Introduction Following the end of World War II, the changes in American society gave rise to the hope that discrimination and segregation would soon be overcome; there were sixty million civilian jobs in 1950 as against 54 million at the end of the war, while personal expenditures leaped from 122 million to 195 million dollars1. The spectacular economic growth had made possible not only an increasing median income for Afro-Americans but also their entry into industries and labour unions previously closed to them2. That, in turn, brought about a gain in occupational status, which did not have to come at the expense of white Americans3. Nevertheless, there had been glaring... ? The Baton Rouge...

...Bus Attack? Rosa Park was a poor seamstress living in Montgomery during the 1950s; a time that was defined by segregation in most part of the United States. At the time, Africans and Europeans were not allowed to share various public facilities such as transport and restaurant. This meant that when the city was crowded, African Americans were required to give up their seats to Europeans while they moved to the back of the bus. On one afternoon, Rosa was seated in bus that was crowded and she was asked to give up her seat but protested and declined. She was arrested for her stubbornness. Soon after, a boycott ensued with African American refusing to board buses unless everyone... Why did the Montgomery...

This action of deliberate civil disobedience ignited the Montgomery Bus Boycott, which could not have taken place if Parks had not stood up against the racial discriminatory action. It would definitely not be a hyperbolic statement if it is said that the credit of Montgomery Bus Boycott goes to Rosa Parks and her almost unparallel perseverance. The Montgomery Bus Boycott was actually an important political and social strike campaign that targeted at removing the prevalent policy of racial segregation in special reference to the public transport system... ? 02 June Rosa Parks: ...

Historians point to the 1950’s as the beginning of this movement. As historian Anthony Badger (The Gilder, 2009) explained in Historians on Postwar America, because African Americans were allowed to serve in the Civil War and World War II and eventually allowed to vote, they developed rising expectations of being treated as an equal by the white people. Many times, this hope was met with disappointment which is why, as Badger shared, history was witness to several protests by African Americans such as the Montgomery Bus ...
