    It is my answer to the question. However, I don't know whether it is correct or not.

    The verb should be "led" not "lead" since you are phrasing it in past tense.

    The civil rights movement started before this, and her act was a planned one. It was still courageous, but it was all carefully planned, as was the year-long bus boycott that followed.

    Correction: Her refusal to stand sparked a boycott that led to the end of the segregation on the Montgomery bus system. Therefore, her courageous action marked the start of the civil rights movement.

    It was a VERY important milestone in the civil rights movement, but it was not the start of it.

    What would you consider to be the start of the Civil Rights Movement? I'm not badgering, I'm just curious.
