Marten Luther King Jr. "believed that if they had 60% cooperation at the bus boycott it would be a success"
What this means in my words
If most people would cooperate then there would be happiness in the world.
MY WORD: boycott
Means: to stop using something for a long time
Sentence: They stopped using the buses for over 1 year and they called it the bus boycott.
Picked this word because this is what people did to protested peacefully, and to make the goverment relize that they should not have segrogated buses
This is the bus Rosa Parks was riding when she was told to give up her seat for a white man
This is were the bus boycott happened
