This movement secured the access of the equality of African Americans in all basic privileges of being a U.S. citizen. What is normally understood as the Civil Rights Movement was in fact a grand struggle for freedom extending far beyond the valiant aims of legal rights and protection(Baldwin 1). Across the country, black organizations, including the National Negro Congress, the MOWM, and the BCSP joined forces with labor unions and politicians ( Baldwin 1). They fought racism within the labor movement, and brought economic concerns to the Statehouse(Baldwin 1). This gave hope that one day, African Americans would be completely Jim Crow free.

The chapter covers the how the white women who had black children were treated in the society, and this is regarding being considered as outcasts, and they were divorced, disgraced, and in other cases, they were cashed from their homes. The third chapter of the book is “the new cry.” This chapter covers the plea of sympathy that was done by the southerners towards the northerners and this is because the whites who had sympathy for the lunching were deemed to have no sympathy for the white women who were victims of rape from the Afro-Americans.

The fact that Dr. Franklin “earned his Master’s degree from Harvard University in 1936 and his doctorate five years in 1941” (Journal of Blacks in Higher Education) is an example that the he believed his mother’s words that he was not inferior because of the color of his skin.

City of Maycomb is a cruel and harsh place to live, due to the environment that people are racist and thinks that the white people have more power than the black people.Not getting a full equal right is not fair. During the Tom Robinson’s trial, people only said that he was guilty because he was a black man; while Ewell was white.

White people thought that giving both of the race a school, but a different school with different supplies and school condition.

Nonetheless, black and white abolitionists did create political and legal campaigns against racial discrimination in the northern states of America. They had few triumphs, such as putting an end to school segregation in Massachusetts.

The events of Brown v. Board of Education had impacted the Supreme Court and the vast majority of white folks in the South that was prepared on fighting the desegregation progress. It impacted the Supreme Court, to imposed the Board of Education that’s wrong on “segregate public schools by race” (Benson).Afterwards,1960, South had methods on keeping blacks and whites separated in school; while complying with Browns (Benson). Injustice, is clearly is demonstrated in the timeframe between 1954 - 2000. People from the South were going to such lengths to ensure that children of colour won't be attending the same school as their children.
