After meeting with “a group of prominent Negro ministers,” the city commission announces that the bus situation is resolved. King calls an emergency meeting of the MIA executive board and charges that the statement is unfounded because no MIA leaders were at the meeting. On Saturday night and Sunday morning King and other members of the MIA board announce that the boycott is still on.
