"The only tired I was, was tired of giving in."

Fifty-five years ago today, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama.

It wasn’t because she was tired. “No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in,” she said later.

Her arrest and conviction for disorderly conduct triggered a 381-day boycott of the bus system by blacks that was organized by a 26-year-old Baptist minister, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

The boycott led to a court ruling desegregating public transportation in Montgomery, but it wasn't until the 1964 Civil Rights Act that all public accommodations nationwide were desegregated.
