On December 1, 1955 a white man expected Miss Rosa Parks to give up her seat on the bus and she hit him with a "boy bye" . Parks' arrest sparked the #MontgomeryBusBoycott . Two months later on February 22, the movement came to a peak when African Americans congregated outside the MoCo jail, as police bought in religious and political figures, including #MLK , for violating the bus segregation laws. Eventually, five women residents of Montgomery and the @NAACP sued the city in U.S. District Court to bring an end to the bus segregation laws.
