For 382 days, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King and many others engaged in a battle that we know as the Montgomery Bus Boycott. It was powerful and showed tremendous strength, courage and determination. For three hundred and eighty-two days, the Black citizens of Montgomery, Alabama refused to ride the bus system that continually disrespected them. Instead of paying their money to ride, they walked, car pooled and creatively found other ways to get around town. The only shortcoming of the Montgomery Bus Boycott was that they did not create their own bus system. In 2015, we follow in the footsteps of our ancestors by actively participating in Step One (economic withdrawal campaigns). More importantly we must build and support our own businesses and institutions. It is imperative for us to do Step Two. 

STEP 1
Economic Withdrawal / Boycott
STEP 2
Build & Support Black Businesses & Institutions
we have power
