Instructors
This document collection seeks to compel students to confront difficult questions, both historical and moral, through historical documents related to the Montgomery bus boycott. By examining the documents in this collection, students will join historians in trying to determine whether social movements arise from the lives of ordinary people seeking to create more than just social conditions for themselves, or whether they emerge because important leaders articulate, energize, and mobilize masses of people. Students are guided through their analysis of the primary sources with an author-provided learning objective, central question, and historical context.
