On 1 December 1955, Rosa Parks refused a bus driver's demand to give up her seat to a white man, resulting in her arrest. Robinson and the WPC responded by calling for a one-day protest of the city's buses on 5 December ... Following the initial success of the boycott, Nixon and Robinson arranged a meeting with the city's ministers to discuss the possibility of extending the boycott to a long-term campaign ... The MIA voted to continue the boycott ... on 21 December 1956, the boycott officially ended)
