    60 years ago today, on December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Following her arrest, a 381 day bus boycott began. The boycott brought a focal point to the Civil Rights movement, and a young pastor, Marin Luther King, Jr. emerged as a national leader in the wake of the action.
