Civil Rights Movement
by Bailey Brouillette
Did the Civil Rights Movement change American's views then and what is the effect today?
Although there were peaceful protests, some people preached about using violence to end the hate. Malcolm X preached that if the white people were to use violence, then the black people should use it too. Even though he preached violence, he is still believed to be one of the most influential African Americans in history. Martin Luther King Jr. was a man who preached peace, on the other hand. He orchestrated the three Selma to Montgomery marches with the SNCC, SCLC, and DCVL. There were many African Americans who helped these causes, but these two men are the most famous.
There were many successful boycotts, and the Montgomery Bus Boycott started it all. The acts of nonviolence helped the cause that ended up ending segregation. All of the boycotts, sit-ins, freedoms rides, and marches.
