Welcome to Montgomery


With a few exceptions, most of the main points of interest here are tied to the Civil Rights movement, which the city played a key role in. In 1955 Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on a city bus, launching a bus boycott led by Martin Luther King Jr, then pastor of Montgomery's Dexter Avenue Baptist Church. This action ultimately desegregated city buses and galvanized the Civil Rights movement nationwide, helping to lay the foundation for the Selma to Montgomery protest marches of 1965.

Modern Montgomery has thoughtfully acknowledged its past while attracting a slew of young entrepreneurs, many of them African American.
