For instance, in 1955 a black boy was murdered for whistling at a white woman, which obviously sparked major civil unrest within the black community. Another well-known event occurred in 1957 when 9 school students, (following the U.S Supreme Court ruling that segregated schools were integrally unequal, 3 years before) under the direction of a member from the NAACP, attempted to integrate both the white and black schools by attending the Central High School at Little Rock, Arkansas which was a school for white people only. Continuing through this was the relentless presence of the ‘Klu Klux Klan’ white supremacist group which used violent methods to counter the push for civil rights. One of the major incidences which galvanised the Civil Rights Movement was the infamous bus boycott of 1955. This event started with a black woman named Rosa Parks who refused to give up her seat to a white man on a public bus.

Non-violence is acting without physical confrontation. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the many people that solved situation without using violence. By using only his words be demonstrated that we African-Americans can do anything without using violence. Practicing non-violence can make you look morally stronger than the other person. In my opinion using there are time when you should use non violence like when you’re using self defence.
Luther King Jr., a social activist from the 50s, stated that, “Human injustice is caused by the fear of what is different. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,” (Quotes About Injustice, Goodreads). Throughout several instances around the world, it is obvious that unjust behaviours were taking place and often, this had a significant impact on the writing from authors during that time. Ideas of revenge, disregard, social responsibility, as well as the act of making change and taking accountability for ones actions have all presented themselves through thematic morals in writing.

My daughter is away attending college, not just a few miles away from home, but four hundred and thirty miles north of Atlanta, Georgia. I couldn’t imagine my daughter calling home one evening hysterical because she had been arrested. Arrested for suspicious fraudulent activity using a credit card because her race, complexion, and ethnicity didn’t fit the criteria of how one should look when purchasing expensive items.

After many years of fighting for equal rights for African Americans, it’s unfortunate that racism still exist and the color of your skin can cost you your freedom.
