Montgomery Bus Boycott

65 years ago, the Montgomery Bus Boycott was in full swing. It was the women of Montgomery who organized the boycott and the court trial of four Montgomery women forced, on separate occasions, to give up their bus seat to a white passenger.  This movement ended segregation on buses.

KBCS video and audio Producer, Ruthie Bly joined a Project Pilgrimage group visiting the site where Rosa Parks boarded the bus leading to her arrest in Montgomery, Alabama. Seattle’s Project Pilgrimage is a non-profit organization offering immersive educational and community building events to learn from the civil rights movement, and stay in conversation on topics of race and equity today.
