Civil Rights Movement

Civil Rights contributing to a more equal and just society.
Tactics of Civil Rights
They would protest up to the white house with picket fences yelling and screaming and wanting equal opportunities they would sit on buses and not move like Rosa Parks did. Another example would be when four black college students refused to leave the counter until they were fed the same food as whites and didn't move until the counter closed, then the next day they came back and brought more people and as word spread people all over the country were doing sit ins as protesting. If a kid was arrested there was another kid to take his place right away.
Another example is speeches they would give speeches up front of thousands of people convincing them to fight for there freedom like Martin Luther King Jr. did and stand up to the higher power to give them equal opportunities. They would get arrested for speaking like Martin Luther King did but once you would get out of jail you go right back you cant give up and let them have the best of you or it wont work. It takes persistence and courage to stand up for what you believe in, especially when its against most of the world and these are just a few of the multiple tactics that were used during the civil rights movement.
