Thank you, darling.

- In a way, a war was about

to start in Montgomery. - Hey!

- A war of wills...

- Give that back!

in the cradle of

the Confederacy.

- It began on a crisp December day.

- Hey!

Give it back!

Give it back.

Give it back!


Where you at?

What you comin' in here

screamin' like a banshee about?

A lady gave these out

to everybody after school.

I'll read it to you.

"This is for...

Monday the"...

Boy, you can't read. We're gonna

die of consumption waitin' for you.

- Can so! Give it back! - Franklin, give

him the paper and let him read it.

Watch it.

"Another Negro woman has

been arrested and thrown in jail

because she refused to get up

out of her seat on the bus...

for a white person

to sit down.

It is the second time

since the Colvin case...

that a Negro woman has been

arrested for the same thing.

This has to be stopped. "

"We're therefore asking

every Negro...

to stay off the buses Monday

in protest of the arrest and trial.

Don't ride the buses to work,

to town, to school...

or anywhere on Monday.

You can afford to stay

out of school for one day,

if you have no other

way to go except by bus.

You can also afford to stay

out of town for one day.

If you work,

take a cab or walk.

- Please, children"...

- I heard about that last night.

- That woman was Miss Parks.

- Rosa Parks?

Yep. They had to bail her out

of jail for sittin' in the bus.

- See, the problem is...

- I'll tell you what the problem is.

I ain't never seen people get so

worked up over a piece of paper.

- I think it's dumb.

- I think you're dumb!

- Shut up, Franklin.

- I bet nobody rides the bus.

- Franklin, sit up.
