This march will become known as Bloody Sunday...because of the violent attack that took place on blacks by the police (Wallenfeldt).
This was seen through events such as the urban riot in waltz, california, the rise of black power which led to the death of Malcolm X. When it came down to the urban riots, it shook the nation from A to Z because of how violent the riot was. It went on for thirty six hours and left over 45 million in only property destroyed, though this was viewed internationally, no serious government action was taken, the closest to executive action taken was only to calm things down in california and repair all damages. In the case of the rise of black power, black muslims also known as the nation of islam “founded by Elijah Muhammad in the 1930’s” preached black superiority and separatism from an evil white world. (Berkin, 761) Once the Organizations most famed individuals Malcolm x went for a pilgrimage and returned he left the organization.
The revival of the KKK was the third and current Klan appeared after World War II. They are in opposition with the Civil Rights Movement, and are inspired by the Jim Crow Laws. The KKK is called as an “Invisible Empire of the South”, and considered as a “hate group”.

He was elected to lead the boycott because he was young and new to town and nobody knew who he was, so he didn’t have a be reputation with the black community. The boycott went on for 382 days and finally the supreme court lifted the segregated transportation laws. Then they had the sit-ins.

This lead to black codes which were laws passed by southern states in 1865 and 1866 in the United States after the American civil war with the intent and the effect of restricting African Americans’ freedom ,and of compelling them to work in the labor economy based on low wages or debts.On February 3, 1870 the 15th Amendment granted African Americans the right to vote. Blacks were scared of the Ku Klux Klan, which used violence, such as lynchings to scare African Americans from voting. This was a hate group in the southern U.S. who was active for several years after the civil war, which aimed to suppress the newly acquired rights of black people and to oppose carpetbaggers from the North, and which was responsible for many lawless and violent
There was very little medical care and standards of education were very low. Even though Stolypin stopped the peasant uprisings, by setting up field court-martial and executing 1144 in 1 year, this caused the protesters to meet terror with terror. Trade unions were also banned and the police cracked down on protests. The tsar, wanted no political concessions all what he did was accepting to the duma. He closed 1000 newspapers and forced 600 trade unions to close so this angered the society even though it restored order.
After Rosa Parks was arrested for not giving up her seat to a white man, many African-Americans began to walk to work instead of taking buses. This greatly impacted the bus companies economically because African-Americans were 75% of bus riders. This forced the bus companies to integrate and was eventually mandated by law. The bus boycott incident forced other cities in the south to rethink their laws regarding segregation. For example, on January 10, 1957 “bombs destroyed five black churches and the home of Reverend Robert S. Graetz, one of the few white Montgomerians who had publicly sided with the MIA(Montgomery Improvement Association)”(1).
The Second Middle Passage of was large to the point that it separated numerous families and caused much hardship. Another student of history, Peter Kolchin showed that this huge scale relocation rehashed ghastly conditions of the Atlantic slave exchange by separating current families and compelling slaves to move a long way from everybody and all that they were well-known too. This had been portrayed as the "focal occasion" in the life of a slave between the American Revolution and the Civil War. As per Berlin that in spite of the idea that the slaves were specifically killed or lived in expectation that they or their families would be moved without wanting to, the grand exile and transportation stunned dark people, both slave and free. Educators Franklin and Moss (2000) have depicted in their book named "From Slavery to Freedom" the time and reasons for the start of subjugation, and the improvement of a recognized and discrete culture among slaves and free blacks.
Several days later the Little Rock nine “returned back to the school, and entered through the side door so they can avoid the crowd of rowdy students and the press.” That same day they were found by more students whom “violently attacked them and innocent bystanders.” In 1958 the first African American, Ernest Green, graduated Little Rock Central High School, and the governor got “reelected and shut down all schools” in Little Rock, Arkansas because he did not want to integrate the schools of Little Rock, Arkansas. The legacy of The Little Rock Nine has set the bar for African American students who has to fight for equality at predominantly whites schools today. The schools cannot be legally segregated, but they can enforce their own rules to justify the way African Americans students present themselves. If an African American student attended school or class with an Afro, Dread Locks, or
There was one student at the University of Oklahoma that was treated with disrespect and inferiority because of how he looked and how he acted. The poor conditions for blacks in schools under the “Separate but equal” doctrine caused the NAACP to file 5 different cases that took out segregation from schools and the Supreme Court’s decision created history. The conditions for black students were horrible and unsanitary. The ¨Separate but Equal¨ doctrine was created in 1896 to keep blacks and whites away from each other (Somervill 28). This was to keep them ¨Equal¨ but really did not because all of the black areas were not kept in good condition and the white´s was.
The death Eugene Williams, one of the majors point of the Chicago Race Riots of 1919, it was one of the things that actually started to make the majority of African-Americans act. Eugene was hit and killed by a thrown rock by a white male on the breakwater, even after his identity was established he wasn’t arrested. Even to make matters worse one of the males accompanying him was arrested instead in the chaos. Of course, many people fought but the majority of the race moved out of the south, the southern states passed new constitutions and laws that dehumanized African-Americans and made them into slaves, they even had to flee from the Ku Klux Klan. This led to The Great Migration, which changed Chicago politically and culturally.
Southern leaders were outraged; the 44 teachers who supported the “nine” lost their jobs. Eisenhower explained that he did what he did not to favor integration, but to obey the federal law. (Roark, P. 924) What set civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s apart from earlier acts of black protest was its widespread presence in the South, with a large number of people involved, their willingness to confront the white institutions directly and the use of non-violent protests and civil disobedience to bring about change. The arrest of Rosa Parks in December 1955 is probably the most famous example of this. The African Americans boycotted the bus system in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the Montgomery bus boycott lasted a full year.
Jim Crow Laws Trapped in society, and treated like nothing- the government has fallen into corruption, and is no longer able to help loved ones. Citizen rights are stripped away, leaving inequality and unfair treatment. This was the Jim Crow Era. Blacks were stripped of the rights that they had gained when freed from slavery. They became soil to the white man territory.
