On Thursday, 1 December 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, civil rights activist Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a busy, segregated bus to a white passenger. Parks was arrested, leading to the Montgomery Bus Boycott, beginning on 5 December, and, ultimately, the end of racial segregation in America.

Krasko's attempts to alter this crucial event in history were thwarted by the Thirteenth Doctor and her companions, Ryan, Yasmin, and Graham. All four were present on the bus when Rosa Parks took her stand. (TV: Rosa) A guide for time travellers noted that this point in the timestream may be vulnerable to tampering.
