Washington was a dominant figure of the African-American community, then largely based in the South, from 1890 to his death in 1915. His Atlanta Address of 1895 received national attention. To many he was seen as a popular spokesman for African-American citizens. Representing the last generation of black leaders born into slavery, Washington was generally perceived as a supporter of education for freedmen and their descendants in the post-Reconstruction, Jim Crow-era South. Throughout the final twenty years of his life, he maintained his standing through a nationwide network of supporters including black educators, ministers, editors, and businessmen, especially those who supported his views on social and educational issues for blacks.
Haleigh Lindsay Mr. Everly Honors History 10 24 February 2016 Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott In the time between 1850 and 1950, segregation was a great problem in the United States. Segregation is the separation of different racial groups in an area. The people used intimidation and violence to prevent blacks from having rights.
Asa Philip Randolph During the 1900’s A. Philip Randolph became a very powerful African American leader and advocate for the African American communities. Randolph wanted for the blacks to have a better future and for the whites to respect the human rights they had as human beings and citizens of America. Before Martin Luther King Jr, Rosa Parks, Malcolm X made their mark A. Philip Randolph had paved the way for them to succeed in fighting for the minorities and the rights that belonged to them. Randolph was the key to the beginning of the civil rights movements and also created the first main organization black labor union.
The Trail of Hope for Civil Rights Judgement; noun, to make decisions or come to a conclusion. Judgement is a big part of society. Especially throughout the fight towards the civil rights movement. Court cases a big part of the civil rights movement. They showed us all of the issues, that were either disregarded because of different races, or in the case of Brown v.

Around the end of the 19th century, there lived many people wanting equality between races. Two main leaders of the African American community that emerged during that time were W.E.B. Du Bois and Booker T. Washington. All though both of these men were fighting for the same cause, they disagreed greatly with each other relating to the strategies that could be used to create progress in both the social and economic aspects of how African Americans lived and were treated. The two conflicting philosophies of these men are still affecting how we think of racial inequality, social class injustice, and much more; to this day.

Why did the Montgomery Bus Boycott succeed? I think it succeeded for these 3 reasons determination, religion, and bravery. First I going to start with bravery because Rosa Parks had to be brave to do something illegal at the time and go to jail for what they believed in. They did risky things that took lots of bravery to accomplish what they did.
Despite that racial segregation in public schools became unconstitutional due to the notable Brown vs. Board of Education court case in 1954, that was merely the beginning of the transformation of American society and acceptance. Subsequently, the new racial movement allowed other minorities to have the courage to defend their civil rights. This was not only a historical moment for minorities, but for women as well. Women, regardless of race, revolted against oppression and traditions. To be politically correct was now discretional.
The first artist I will be talking about is James Brown. James Brown was born May 3rd in 1933 in the state of South Carolina. He was moved to Georgia at age four to live with his aunt after his parents split up (James Brown Biography). Brown grew up in great poverty and worked any job he could get to earn a penny. After getting kicked out of school, he turned to more odd end jobs and crime.
The effects of black discrimination have haunted the nation for centuries. Despite cover-all acts and amendments, there have always been ways around anti-discrimination laws. Even following Union victory, some southerners withheld slaves until troops were at their doorsteps. The Black Codes, laws that outlined the rights of African Americans, are perfect examples. These Codes, were lists of societal restrictions meant to keep whites on top.
