  1. I learned while getting a post ready about Rosa Parks (Rosa Parks – civil disobedience) that a 15-year-old girl, Claudette Colvin, was arrested on March 2, 1955, for refusing to give up her seat to. She was a member of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People Youth Council. Claudette later on went to testify at the Montgomery federal court hearing in the Browder v. Gayle case by which was declared that segregated busing in Montgomery was unconstitutional. I read many news and history pages about the incidents and found that http://www.montgomeryboycott.com/ is a very nice site to visit about the history of the Montgomery bus cases and arrests and so on.
