More Than A Bus Ride©” is a story of the struggle of a local community in Montgomery, Alabama to un-ending quest to gain their full rights of citizenship, to end practices of racial segregation in the United States of America. It is about the transformation of the bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama from a one day protest demanding better treatment and better seating on a segregated bus in Montgomery to a 381day protest and challenge of segregation laws in the United States Supreme Court. MTABR© shows the brilliance, patience, determination of a local organization, the Montgomery Improvement Association and the local Black community that overcame fear, political and community divisions, caste, and class, to organize, plan, struggle and win a battle for freedom, not just for themselves but for all those who call the United States home. MTABR was a 14th Amendment struggle and its success was crucial to the Modern Civil Rights Struggle of Black Americans, women, labor, immigrants( southern europe), children and is the foundation of struggles for citizenship rights today.
