How and What did Rosa protest?• The bus became crowded and Rosa was ordered by the bus driver to give up her seat to a white passenger.• Rosa Parks remained in her seat. The bus driver again asked her to move, but she refused.
Arrest and the Montgomery Bus Boycott• The bus driver called the police and Parks was arrested for refusing to yield her seat to a white patron.• Mrs. Parks was found guilty of disorderly conduct and that led directly to the famous Montgomery Bus Boycott, which eventually led to the desegregation of buses throughout the United States.
