  4. I am confused, though. In my literature textbook, it states that "this incident sparked a boycott that led to the end of segregation on the Montgomery bus system. Her courageous action marked the start of the civil rights movement." However, when I asked you, you said that I was incorrrect.

  5. Did you read through the timeline in that link I gave you? Dr King and others were active well before the Montgomery bus boycott, but I think the bus boycott got the biggest news coverage because it lasted for a full year or so. Be sure to read through the 1955 and 1956 items in that timeline. Then let me know how you plan to rephrase your response.

    PS - I don't think it needs very much rephrasing, but it does need clarifying.

  6. We could say the civil rights movement started at the end of the Civil War. However, the modern Civil Rights movement began with the Supreme Court ruling against school segregation in 1954. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus the following year.
