To proceed with the civil rights movement, tactics needed to be made. Marten Luther King Jr. was inspired by Gandhi and his peaceful tactics. MLK then knew he wanted to use peaceful methods to gain Civil Rights.

Peaceful tactics included boycotting. Boycotting is when a large number of people restrain from the use of something. An example would be the Montgomery bus boycott. This occurred after the arrest of Civil Rights Activist; Rosa Parks when she would not give up her seat to a white person.

2 important groups in the civil rights movement

NAACP: the group's name is the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Their goal was to integrate society and to overturn segregation. The group was formed in 1904. They often supported court cases with desegregation.
