Still image from the film Boycott
In 1955, Rosa Parks dared to take an empty seat in the “Whites Only” section on a city bus in Montgomery, AL. Her single act sparked one of the first major battles in the civil rights movement. Naming Dr. King its president, the Montgomery Improvement Association successfully brought the black community together in one of the first major organized, grass-roots battles against segregation and racism in the 1950s. Boycott dramatizes the events of the Montgomery bus boycott, weaving vintage newsreel footage with scenes depicting the public and private dramas involved in the protests. Special thanks to HBO Films. (HD Cam presentation)
