Integrated Bus Suggestions Document From 1956 – Montgomery, Alabama

This 1956 document includes suggestions for managing bus racial integration. As we approach MLK Day in the U.S., this is worth reading. Certainly, it’s a reminder of segregation and the lasting legacy. I’m also reminded by it to serve as an example of civility in moments of sweeping change.

The Mass Transit Experiment Update

This has been a good experience for me. Erica now has her van and I have my car back… but I am still riding the bus. While the weather is good, I see it as good exercise and a money-saver. Once cold sets in, well, I don’t know that I’ll be able to keep-up the biking. Anyhow, challenges can be opportunities if you allow them to be. AB
