We’re calling it #1 this time because it’s a reboot. 🙂
December 1, 1955 – Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the bus.
Here’s the Library of Congress article about that event. From the article:
The problem with this story is that it backgrounds all the work – the organizing, the building, the fundraising and traveling – that laid the ground work for that moment to turn into a movement and the effort that kept it going for a year. It turns the Montgomery bus boycott into an obvious event that was destined to succeed, rather than one created by the visions, efforts and continued steadfastness of ordinary people.
