One day in , Parks boarded a bus and paid the fare. She then moved to her seat but driver James F. Blake told her to follow city rules and enter the bus again from the back door. When Parks exited the vehicle, Blake drove off without her. She paid her fare and sat in an empty seat in the first row of back seats reserved for blacks in the "colored" section.
Near the middle of the bus, her row was directly behind the ten seats reserved for white passengers. Initially, she did not notice that the bus driver was the same man, James F. Blake, who had left her in the rain in As the bus traveled along its regular route, all of the white-only seats in the bus filled up. The bus reached the third stop in front of the Empire Theater, and several white passengers boarded. Blake noted that two or three white passengers were standing, as the front of the bus had filled to capacity.
He moved the "colored" section sign behind Parks and demanded that four black people give up their seats in the middle section so that the white passengers could sit.
Years later, in recalling the events of the day, Parks said, "When that white driver stepped back toward us, when he waved his hand and ordered us up and out of our seats, I felt a determination cover my body like a quilt on a winter night.

No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in.
When Parks refused to give up her seat, a police officer arrested her. As the officer took her away, she recalled that she asked, "Why do you push us around? Parks was charged with a violation of Chapter 6, Section 11 segregation law of the Montgomery City code,  although technically she had not taken a white-only seat; she had been in a colored section.

On Sunday, December 4, , plans for the Montgomery bus boycott were announced at black churches in the area, and a front-page article in the Montgomery Advertiser helped spread the word.
At a church rally that night, those attending agreed unanimously to continue the boycott until they were treated with the level of courtesy they expected, until black drivers were hired, and until seating in the middle of the bus was handled on a first-come basis. The next day, Parks was tried on charges of disorderly conduct and violating a local ordinance. The trial lasted 30 minutes. I did not want to be mistreated, I did not want to be deprived of a seat that I had paid for.
It was just time I had plenty to do without having to end up in jail. The more we gave in, the more we complied with that kind of treatment, the more oppressive it became. The handbill read,. We are You can afford to stay out of school for one day. If you work, take a cab, or walk. Please stay off the buses Monday. It rained that day, but the black community persevered in their boycott.
Some rode in carpools, while others traveled in black-operated cabs that charged the same fare as the bus, 10 cents.
