In general, the students of the Greensboro sit-in both continued and started their own form of a Civil Rights Movement. Brown v. Board of Education was the start of contemplation of segregation in schools. Oliver Brown wanted his daughter to go to school by where they lived, but she was not allowed to because she was of African American docent. Each state during this time period stated that whites would be separate to African Americans . Brown argued that this broke the 14th amendment (Equal Rights), but was overruled in court when the jury decided as long as students learned the same thing and classroom settings were equal than no laws were broken.

I actually forgot to get my mom to sign my slip, but when the time came to turn in the slip, I bluntly raised my hand and told the teacher that I wouldn 't be able to watch it. Without hesitation. There wasn 't much care in the situation, after all, it was just a petty movie assigned by the school. The only thing I worried about was what would we—as in those who didn 't get their signature, or just got in enough trouble to where they couldn 't participate—would do while the rest of the eighth grade had to watch the movie. My homeroom teacher claimed that I 'd have to do tons of work, so when she was in the middle of tell us that, I was surely regretting not getting the signature.

Not being able to focus on anything and everything my parents nag at me, went in and out. Nobody asked what was wrong because everyday I went to school and put on a smile, not letting others know and I thought it was embarrassing for me because my grades weren’t good and I was comparing myself to others. I am someone who doesn’t tell others about my problems, I didn’t want to bother them or anything at

One day at school, Kalyssa wasn’t there; immediately, I pulled out my trusty flip-phone and asked her where she was… There was no reply, and I didn’t think much of it. The day continued on as usual, until after lunch when our councilor came in. She looked really sad, but determined to say something, “Class, I’m sorry to tell you that Kalyssa’s mom has passed away.” She said it as though it was to be expected, but I knew Kalyssa’s mom. She wasn’t sick or anything like that. So, I rose my hand and asked how she died.
The man I have to thank goes by the name of Mr. Reid. The first two months I didn’t say one word in his class. One day he asked me to stay after class so we can talk. At first I was panicked thinking I was going to get in trouble. We sat down and the first question he asked me was why I didn’t speak in class?
That morning, like every other day for the past decade, Taya was torn between resistance and acceptance of her sadness that time has had no effect on. It was the Black Day in Aire, the annual tribute to the victims of the Grostro Pirates’s attack. Taya and Marti skipped breakfast and left the house together without saying much. On their way to the memorial center, Taya broke the silence asking Marti, who lost her father in the fight, what she remembered the most about that day. “I remember the darkness,” she replied.

This act acknowledged Scout’s courage, as the next day when Cecil Jacobs taunted Scout’s father for defending and African American, she followed her father’s advice and walked off without a fight. Another example of courage is during the trial when Scout explained: “We acquire no traumas from watching our father win or lose” (Lee 229), while other lawyer’s children “Get the wrong idea, they think opposing counsel to be the personal enemies of their parents” (Lee 229). It takes extreme courage for Scout to not take the opposing counsel to an offense and understand that her father’s fight for equality was correct despite contradiction from others. To Scout, courage means to do the correct thing, although it may be difficult during certain situations. For instance, after Boo Radley saved Jem and brought him home, he asked Scout: “Will you take me home” (Lee 372), although Scout did not want to she still brought Boo to his destination.
When Wes was in Valley Forge military school all he could ever think of was leaving. He had no communication with the outside world; there were no phone calls, television, radios, and visits. (Look up) Wes attempted to run away *several times, but failed. When he tried to run away, Colonel Batt gave Wes the opportunity to call home for the first time in weeks, saying, “ I am going to let you talk on the phone for five minutes, call who you need to and you better be snapped about it” (94). When Wes calls his mother, during conversation Joy cuts Wes off and reminds him how proud everyone is for him (quote).
