The Bristol bus boycott of 1963

Inspired by the Rosa Park's bus boycott in Montgomery, the Bristol Bus Boycott was a four month long campaign to drive employment rights for black and ethnic minority applicants to the Omnibus transport company. Led by Paul Stevenson and the West Indian Development Council, the boycott was a foundation for much of the progress in UK employment law.
