Fight for change without the Fight 

On December 1, 1955, an African-American called Rosa Parks returned home from work on the Cleveland Ave. bus. Since the front half of the bus was reserved for whites, the back half was made for colored.


When the seats for whites were filled, the driver, J. Fred Blake, asked Parks to move from her seat but she refused. Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her bus seat. After that arrest, the Women’s Politics Council (WPC), full of black women working for the civil rights, called for a boycott of the bus system. Black bus riders boycotted the system for a change without violence. Can we boycott the movement for Black Lives with no violence?
