Video footage of the Montgomery bus boycott with voice over by Dr. King. Just short of 27 years old at the time, Dr. King led the 13-month boycott, from December 5, 1955 to its successful conclusion on December 20, 1956. He was jailed and his house was bombed, but throughout, he maintained his organizing call: “Always fight with love”.
