Rosa Parks Walking to Jail

Rosa Parks Walking to Jail

Original caption: Rosa Parks (center), accompanied by her attorney, Charles D. Langford (right), and an unidentified deputy, is on her way to jail- arrested on charges of violating city segregation laws which precipitated a citywide boycott by Montgomery Negroes of the city bus line. At least 40 Negroes were arrested, fingerprinted, and photographed here February 22nd, charged with illegally boycotting the bus line in protest against reserved seats for whites. A grand jury indicted 115 persons the day before on charges of violating a 1921 state law, which makes it a misdemeanor for two or more persons to plot to prevent others from carrying on their business.
