My Top five events during the civil rights movement
This is the most significant event during the Civil Rights Movement. This is because the montgomery boycott was the start and beginning of the movement that motivated African Americans to take charge and fight for their rights.
March on Washington- August 28, 1963
This march was the second most significant event. The march on Washington brought both blacks and whites together to stand against racism. About 250,000 people marched, 60,000 of them being whites.
Little Rock Central High School desegregated- 1957
The desegragation of Little Rock is the third. This was substantial because it meant blacks and whites could now attend the same schools giving African Americans equal education rights.
Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka decision- 1954
The Brown v. board of Ed. is fourth. This was significant because the separate but equal concept was declared unconstitutional.
Selma to Montgomery- 1965
