The Civil Rights Movement

By: Cassidy Johnson

The Civil Rights Movement was a mass movement of the African Americans. The movement helped the African Americans to have the same laws as the rest of America.The civil rights movement contributed to making the United States a more equal and just society by achieving many goals. Such as desegregating public places and equal voting rights. By using non violent tactics such as sits ins,marches and boycotts the African Americans hard work finally paid off.

Waiting On The World To Change

This song reminds me of the Civil Rights Movement because all the African Americans are waiting for the world to change and have everything be equal.
"Now we see everything that's going wrong
With the world and those who lead it
We just feel like we don't have the means
To rise above and beat it"
I think these lyrics represent the Civil Rights perfectly. Everyone makes them feel like they don't have the means to make the laws equal. But they eventually did.
