The Montgomery Bus Boycott, which ignited the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s, has always been vitally important . This little memoir by a highly educated black woman who lived in Montgomery before, during and after the boycott stands like a monument in my eyes.

The Montgomery Bus Boycott, which ignited the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s, has always been vitally important in southern and black history. A mountain-top view where the reader will observe more slow-moving colors than the eye can understand, especially for someone like me who wasn't there.

A host of Black women like Jo Ann Gibson Robinson had been agitating in Montgomery . Robinson, who died in 1992, joined the English department at Alabama State in 1949. 1, 1955, Robinson and the WPC sprang into action.

A host of Black women like Jo Ann Gibson Robinson had been agitating in Montgomery long before Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr. and others took up their struggle and catapulted it into the history books. Montgomery may have launched the American civil rights movement, but these unheralded women launched Montgomery. Headed to the airport to catch a flight to see her family during her first Christmas vacation in Alabama, the 33-year-old boarded a bus with just two other passengers and took a seat close to the front.

Tinavio
The story of the women behind the Montgomery Bus Boycott is beautiful and full of courage. Jo Ann Robinson's life and dedication to improving the lives of the black citizens of Montgomery cannot be denied. What is taught in schools is not only grossly incorrect, it denies an entire populace of women (and men) who had a role in pushing forward with the desegregation in the South. This manuscript-turned-nonfiction account is priceless and contributes to the dialogue of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s.

This book is fantastic! Jo Ann Gibson Robinson's memoir recounts the work of the women behind the Montgomery Bus Boycott. All that participated in this moment in history had an important role. However, the public only celebrates the men. This book was an eye-opener, and it was really refreshing. I gave it to my Mother to read, and she found it enlightening as well.

History is so important. Read this book.

A quick read that broadens the understanding of the Montgomery Bus Boycott, it does not take anything away from Rosa Parks, but it tells much of the story, behind the story, including the influence more generally of women in early days of the Civil Rights movement.

I've read this book back in 1993 or so for a class and re-read it recently. It has become one of my favorite books to outline the accounts of the Montgomery bus boycott and although it's a memoir it's a great historical document!

This wonderful source from the very person who help to spear head the Montgomery Bus Boycott puts you there in the midst of everything. Clearly explained and plainly tells the reader of the experience she lived through. No woman can read this and not feel a swell of pride for the power and strength of the women of Montgomery who were the real backbone of the bus boycott. No young black woman could read this and not feel her self-worth rising as a formable power. Nor could she ever be ashamed of the great role these women played, and gladly to took a back seat to let the men of the movement be leaders. They showed to be great people because they wanted what was best for all, instead of wanting to be attention grabbers for the sake of getting attention. These women knew what was important and the kept the goal until achieving victory. Should be read in every school and book club in America.
