Civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. led what non-violent campaign in Montgomery, Alabama in favor of fair treatment and equal rights for blacks following the open racial segregation of Rosa Parks on public transportation?

Answer bus boycott

The Montgomery Bus Boycott, where blacks refused to take public transportation, lasted for a year from 1955-56. The US Supreme Court then ordered Montgomery to integrate its public transportation system. MLK was only 26 years old at the time, but became the leader of the non-violent Civil Rights movement.
