December 1st of this year was the anniversary of the famous Montgomery Bus Boycott. The boycott was a political and social protest campaign that staged in December 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama. It's emergence has been credited to the seamstress and activist Rosa Parks refusing to relinquish her seat to a white man on a bus. One black woman taking a stand that would alter history America. However long before the Montgomery Bus Boycotts, black women had been taking up the segregated transportation fight as far back as 1854. As a matter of a fact, a hugely under reported fact is that these daring damsels we're going to visit on this episode, did more for the desegregation of public transportation than anyone else in the history of the civil rights movement. It’s a history lesson for all and a huge accolade for women. Its a history lesson on The Horizon!
