The Civil Rights Movement was the movement that changed history for the African Americans. They had been struggling for many decades to be able to vote and now they can. They have faced the struggles of being ostracized from society, being sold, born, and forced into slavery. They were not liked well when they were apart of anything dealing with politics. The Civil Rights Movement was a successful movement in terms of helping the African Americans.
ROSA PARKS BY DONELLA TRELLO Rosa parks was put on this world on February 4, 1913 in Tuskegee, Alabama. She was picked on as a child because she was an African-American. When she was a child her Grandpa held a shotgun in his hand as the Klu Klux Klan went by. Parks knew as a child that segregation was wrong and that the black and whites should be together and get along.
Historically, the Civil Rights Movement was a time during the 1950’s and 1960’s to eliminate segregation and gain equal rights. Looking back on all the events, and vital figures it produced, this explanation is very unclear. In order to fully understand the Civil Rights Movement, you have to go back to its beginning. Most people believe that Rosa Parks began the whole civil rights movement. She did in fact move the Civil Rights Movement to groundbreaking heights but its origin began in 1954 with Brown vs. Board of Education of Topeka.
Rosa Parks When Rosa Parks, also known as “The Mother of American Civil Rights” refused to give her seat to a white man in December of 1955 she was arrested. This event led to a protest in Montgomery that eventually brought profound to the United States. The Montgomery Bus Boycott continued for 381 days, until the Supreme Court ruled on Parks situation on the bus. Making racial separations illegal on the city buses.
Why did the Montgomery bus Boycott succeed? The Montgomery bus boycott was a huge protest against the public bus systems in Montgomery, Alabama. The protesters participating refused to ride the busses in that area so that they would eventually no longer operate. Rosa Park’s arrest triggered the protest. There are quite a few reasons it succeeded.
60 years ago in Montgomery, Alabama Rosa Parks refused to give her seat up on the bus to a white man, he told her he would have her asserted and she replied “You may do that” (Brinkley 2000). Rosa Parks was then arrested and fined. The events that led up to the arrest of Rosa Park changed the civil rights movement and the United States. It has nearly been 6 decades since Rosa Park’s arrest, and if you ask me our country is still dealing with racial justice issues. Mrs. Clinton recently spoke at an event honoring Rosa Parks saying, “There is something profoundly wrong when black men are disproportionately stopped and searched by the police, arrested or killed.
Birmingham, Mobile, Huntsville, Dothan, and Auburn are the 5 largest states of Alabama and they are filled with some fun and interesting tourist attractions. For example, Birmingham’s art museum or huntsville’s big spring park. Alabama’s population is 4,779,736. The cost of living is over $340 just for food, housing, and health. Gulf state park, Cheaha state park, and Wild creek state park are the top 3 parks in the country for swimming, hiking and many more.
On the night that Rosa Parks was captured, E.D. Nixon, leader of the nearby section of the NAACP, started shaping arrangements to sort out a blacklist of Montgomery 's city transports. Advertisements were put in nearby papers, and handbills were printed and dispersed in dark neighborhoods. Individuals from the African-American group were requested that stay off city transports on Monday, December 5, 1955—the day of Rosa 's trial—in dissent of her capture. Individuals were urged to stay home from work or school, take a taxicab or stroll to work. With the greater part of the African-American group not riding the transport, coordinators trusted a more drawn out blacklist may be effective.
Some people believe that being well known or having a position of power is the only way to effectively communicate your beliefs, but the story of Rosa Parks will prove those people wrong time and time again. Her famous act of defiance is remembered as an extremely influential piece of the civil rights movement. Refusing to move out of a bus seat may not be seen like the most heroic thing a person could do, but it made all the difference in earning African American citizens their rights. Born on February 4th, 1913 in Tuskegee Alabama, Rosa Parks was surrounded by hate and violence toward African Americans as she grew. As a child, she lived on her grandparents’ farm outside of town.
During the early 20th century, mainly in the South, many African Americans were banned from associating with whites in public locations such as schools, restrooms, restaurants , etc. Racial discrimination denied blacks the rights of decent jobs, decent schooling, and the right to vote. "Freedom is never won, you earn it and win it in every generation," Coretta Scott King once stated. The Civil Rights Movement was a long movement that predated the Brown v. Board of Education decision. The civil rights movement led to the Brown v. Board decision due to the limited rights for African Americans during that time.
