Monday's Trivia Question
On Thursday, December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her bus seat to a white man, even though she was sitting in the black section. After her arrest, the local black community organized a one-day boycott of the city buses to take place on Monday, December 5, 1955. Following the initial success of the campaign, black leaders voted to continue the boycott. They formed a new organization and they named Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as its president.
