Marches were set up everywhere from street corner to the other street corner. Marches mainly consisted of African American women and men and some white people. People started marches for many reasons; wanting to vote, wanting to not have to give up their seat to a white person, be able to walk into the same places as whites and also be treated with racial equality.
Sit ins were places where whites would get served and a African American will sit at the seat till he gets served , this whoever most times didn't work out because they ended up either not getting served or get escorted by police.
