Montgomery, Alabama, 1955. The Doctor and her friends find themselves in the Deep South of America. As they encounter a seamstress by the name of Rosa Parks, they begin to wonder whether someone is attempting to change history.
Did You Know?
Rosa Parks wasn't the first woman arrested for refusing to give up her seat. Nine months prior to the events of this episode, a black teenager named Claudette Colvin refused to give up her seat on a Montgomery bus to a white passenger. Because she was underage and believed to be pregnant by a much older married man (this was later found to be false), it was decided that she was not suitable to be the face of the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Since Rosa Parks' case could take considerable time to make its may through lower-level courts, Colvin's case (along with other plaintiffs) was used as the basis for challenging the constitutional legitimacy of the segregated bus laws. The case (Browder v. Gayle) eventually made it to the U.S. Supreme Court where they affirmed that that bus segregation is unconstitutional under the Fourteenth Amendment. See more
