Once We Walked covers 14 months of American history from December 1955 to January 1957, beginning with the arrest of Rosa Parks and continuing through the episode of segregationist violence that followed the end of the boycott and the return of African Americans to the Montgomery buses. The dates in the calendar and the federal and religious holidays noted are correct for 20152017, while the events listed in small type on the various days are accurate for the period 19551957. All the text passages, photos, and text sidebars refer to the earlier period. The calendar thus serves as both a historical record of the boycott era and as a functional wall calendar for current use.
