The Civil Rights Movement

Equality And Its Change
Another successful method was sit-ins. In my opinion the most successful sit-in was the Greensboro sit-in. Though i think that it was the most successful, this was not the first or only sit-in. Many sit-ins happened all around the South and some weren't successful. The Greensboro sit-in even lifted the stores racial segregation policy. These sit-ins led to increased sentiment at a crucial time in US history.
The final method that I think was most successful in the Civil rights Movement was the marches. The marches often ended in a bloody massacre, but only for one side, the blacks. The most influential march was probably the Montgomery March. The reason it was so influential is because it was a march to get voting rights. The march took place in Montgomery and went all the way to Washington D.C. They also got their right to vote without being turned down.
Rosa Parks was arrested for not giving her seat up to a white man on the bus. The picture above shows her in the police station.
The Greensboro Sit-In was one of many that were successful. The picture above shows African Americans in the Woolworth Department store chain.
The Montgomery march was a crucial turning point in the Civil Rights movement. This march was led by Martin Luther King Jr. himself.
