Awn December 1, 1955, een Montgomeree, Eelabama, Parks jus wouldnae sit doon. James F. Blake telt her tae stop bein a big hoor an tae give up her seat in the darkie section to a proper passeenger, after the white section was filled. Parks wasnae the first person to cause a bus kerfuffle. Others had taken the piss n aw, including Bayard Rustin in 1942,[2] Irene Morgan in 1946, Sarah Louise Keys in 1952, and the members of the ultimately successful Browder v. Gayle lawsuit (Claudette Colvin, Aurelia Browder, Susie McDonald, an Mary Louise Smith) who was arrested in Montgomeree for nae geen up their bus seats months afore Parks.
