Rosa Parks was a black woman who refused to give up her bus seat to a white man in 1955 and sparked the Montgomery bus boycott. The Montgomery Bus Boycott was a concerted effort by blacks in Montgomery Alabama to live without bus services in late 1955 and early 1956. Martin Luther King Jr came to national prominence through the Montgomery Bus Boycott and remained the most influential Civil Rights leader until his assassination. The civil rights movement, which aimed to deliver the rights assured black Americans in the post-Civil-War amendments, reached its peak of activity in the 1960's.
