The story of Rosa Parks went from being a regular office worker to being known as the Mother of Civil Rights in Montgomery. One night, the clan became alerted about the seriousness of the new arbitrary bus law that prevailed in the city when they all seated and talked about how their day went one to another. They all expressed their displeasure about the new development; the blacks were to sit at the designated back of the bus and are to vacate a whole row for the whites as soon as the 'whites' part of the bus was completely occupied. Even Rustin, who brought the news to them boasted that he was never going to obey the law, against the advice of Rosa Parks' husband. Unfortunately, Rustin was arrested the following week. As much as Rosa couldn't bear the ill treatment the whites meted on the blacks, she tried to stay out of trouble, but trouble couldn't stay off her path as she encountered a detestable white driver who drove off without her, even after she had paid the fee. She promised herself never to ride with the driver anymore and against all odds, she stayed out of trouble for years, - secretly detesting the way the blacks lived, the way they relegated to their fate. Several years later, trouble finally knocked - and Rosa opened. She refused to vacate her seat on the bus for a white commuter. She was arrested, and that single arrest began the journey to complete civil freedom for the blacks. The arrest of Rosa Parks led to the boycotting of all the buses in Montgomery by the blacks, no matter how far it was. The black population walked to wherever they wanted to get to. The boycott lasted for a year and sixteen days as a result of appeal. On the three hundred and eighty-first day, the court ruled in favor of the blacks and overturned the arbitrary law. At the end of it all, because it was a movement that was instigated by Rosa Parks, she became known as the Mother of Civil Rights.
