A blues-infused tribute to the men and women of the Montgomery, Alabama, bus boycott, by the acclaimed author-and-artist team of Andrea Davis Pinkney and Brian Pinkney.

On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus, and the Montgomery bus boycott began. So did the boycott blues. In the days that followed--382 days to be exact--many people decided they'd rather walk than take city transportation.

Some started taxis, some rode bikes, but they all walked and walked. With dogged feet. With dog-tired feet. With boycott feet. With the boycott blues. The Montgomery bus boycott finally ended when the Supreme Court ruled that segregation on public transportation was unconstitutional.
