Making A Change
The colored thought that they should have some sort of rights. They started to boycott the buses and refused to ride them. Martin Luther King Jr. had been hired to get those rights for them. They had to walk or car pole where ever they went. Martin had been getting threats from people and was in danger by whites. He was always accompanied by others for protection. He was arrested on April 12th as, he was supposed to be kept over night but a riot grew and they let him go early.
When the colored succeeded in the civil rights movement they did not cheer they were told to be normal. They would walk on the bus pay sit down and act like nothing happen. Over the next couple of years everything else went down also. Everyone started using the same bathroom, and water fountains. Everything was starting to look like life is now.
