Abstract 

In this article, the author writes about the beginning of the bus boycott movement in Montgomery, Alabama, and the attacks against it. He describes the layout of a bus prior to the boycott, indicating where African Americans and white people were allowed to sit, asserting that the buses were just part of a serene world without any kind of racial tensions until the boycott. He notes that as a response to the boycott, Martin Luther King Jr. was convicted of conspiring without "just cause or legal excuse".
