    Rosa Parks was arrested on December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, for refusing to give up her seat on a Montgomery city bus to a white person. At that time, the law in Montgomery required African Americans to give up their seats to white people if the white section of the bus was full. This was part of the segregation laws in the southern United States, known as Jim Crow laws. By refusing to give up her seat, Rosa Parks was breaking the law and was subsequently arrested. However, her act of civil disobedience sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott, which lasted for more than a year and ultimately led to the desegregation of public transportation in Montgomery.
