The Bus Boycott. The bus boycott began a bit after a woman named Rosa Parks was arrested on a bus for sitting in a ¨white mans zone." This angered the black community in the local area and they came up with a plan to boycott using busses.

The Money Loss The money loss from the african americans boycotting the busses slowly grew to the point where the bus companies would go bankrupt. This would be a major part of integration.
