During the suppression, an Alabama state trooper intentionally, in my opinion, shot Jimmie Lee Jackson when he tried to protect his mother from the violence of the state troopers. At the funeral of Jimmie L. Jackson, Doctor King mentioned in his speech that, “He was murdered by the brutality of every sheriff who practices lawlessness in the name of law.

The African-American riders set out to test the 1960 decision that segregation of interstate bus terminals was unconstitutional.

The protest eventually turned into a 381 day bus boycott. Over 40,000 African Americans participated in the first day, which ended up making the protest so successful.

The most eye opening case of racism during this period of the movement was the Selma to Montgomery march. The Selma to Montgomery march was conducted by Martin Luther King Jr. in response to the death of Jimmie Lee Jackson, a peaceful demonstrator fatally shot by an Alabama State Trooper during an attack on the group of white segregationists. King and his supporters planned to march from Selma to Montgomery, and refused to let anything stop the march. The group of 600 marched all the way to the Edmund Pettis Bridge and were met with resistance from Alabama State Troopers, armed with teargas and nightsticks.

Today, the SCLC is fighting for the equal rights of everyone, regardless of race, gender, religion or background.
