If there was not enough space, a Caucasian person was allowed to kick an African American out of their spot and take over it. Rosa Parks was sitting on a bus, when a Caucasian man told her to move so he could take her spot. She kindly refused and remained in her spot. Rosa was then sent to jail. African Americans decided stop going on buses to defend Rosa Parks. This lasted for a while before Rosa Parks was let out of jail and bus segregation ended. http://www.core-online.org/History/montgomery%20boycott.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montgomery_Bus_Boycott#Events_leading_up_to_the_bus_boycott http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&frm=1&source=web&cd=2&ved=0CDsQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ushistory.org%2Fus%2F54b.asp&ei=awGRUfzFHYiXyAGT-IGYCA&usg=AFQjCNH8zL6f247S4kI4B1kSi9gYmCnCxA&sig2=3lsc2wszgLptvXo3XwnmhQ&bvm=bv.46340616,d.aWc Tuskegee, Alabama - Rosa Parks was home-schooled when she was younger.
