Martin Luther King Riding Montgomery Bus

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (center) rides the Montgomery bus with Rev. Glenn Smiley (right) of Texas. In 1955, black activists formed the Montgomery Improvement Association to boycott the segregated transit system and chose Dr. King as their leader. A year later, the African Americans of Montgomery, Alabama, achieved their goal of desegregation of the city's buses.
