Rosa Parks Museum

My family and I visited the Rosa Parks Museum on February 10th, in Montgomery AL, which was mainly about the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

The Montgomery Bus Boycott started when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a public bus  because she believed all people were equal. During the Boycott, the furious white people were very harsh to the black people. They burned crosses in their yards, threw bricks, water, and urine on them, and called them names like “nigger”.

I found it interesting that since the black people wouldn’t ride the buses, the bus companies started losing money. They tried to raise the fares, but apparently it just made the boycott worse. The black people had to get to work, so they organized carpools. In the end, the boycott worked to make the bus companies not segregate the black people from the white people.
