A New Making
"To what degree has the civil rights movement contributed to making the Untied States a more equal and just society." The civil rights movement was a major contributor in the world we know today. In 1954, segregation was one of the main reasons why the civil right movement was started. Black people were treated horribly by white people. We treated them like some disease. what strategies were used , who helped with the movement, the songs that were made, the events that took place, and the people or groups who helped.
strategies and Tactics for freedom against segregation
One of the most used strategies is boycotting.
they would go against the law and protest against everything. One of the most famous boycott was Rosa parks, she stat in the front of the bus instead of moving to the back.
Another way was to march places, they would march from town to town wanting to be heard, they wanted to annoy people so that they could give them what they deserve. Most of the time when they would march their would be an angry crowed waiting for them . They would stop using any transportation that they had to pay money on and the people who own those things lost money.
Multiply groups were formed in order to help black get civil rights like the SCLC focused its efforts in the urban centers, SNCC‘s activities were concentrated in the rural Black Belt areas of Georgia , Alabama, and Mississippi, where white resistance was intense. Although the NAACP and the predominantly white Congress of racial equality (CORE) also contributed activists to the Mississippi movement, young SNCC organizers spearheaded civil rights efforts in the state.
