On December 2, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus. This quiet act of defiance in Montgomery, Alabama, led to the Civil Rights Movement of the '60s. Focusing on the events in Alabama, interviews with Mrs. Parks and other eyewitnesses describe the effects of segregation on minorities in the South. Due to her contributions to fighting racial discrimination, she became known as "the mother of the Civil Rights Movement." Note: Instances of racial slurs and photographs of lynchings.
