Civil Rights Movement
The Civil Rights Movement had an huge impact during the segregation in the South. The Civil Rights Movement was there to help outlaw racial discrimination in the United States. They helped the African Americans gain more freedom and have more voting rights as the whites did. The Civil Rights Movement was there to help African Americans become first-class citizens like the whites were. They wanted to live in the same area, without having to flee or change their ways of life due to their race. They wanted to be treated equally like any other regular, normal people. Thus, the Civil Rights Movement started in fighting to help all African Americans in the South gain independence and freedom. The Civil Rights Movement was there to throw out the Jim Crow laws, and make sure the Democratic government made new laws where all citizens felt equal. Many Civil Rights activists like Martin Luther King Jr. made speeches to help convince the African American people to start boycotting, in order to show the public that the laws made business go down. They also did freedom rides throughout the whole South to prove to people that African Americans wanted rights too. Once the laws for the buses got changed, the Civil Rights Movement kept improving on different laws to change. As they went through hatred, the sight of violence and harm, the African Americans were determined to stay calm. They continued their bus boycotts and freedom rides, willing to do anything just to get their freedom back. The Civil Rights Movement has left a huge impact in history today, and gave America the diversity it has now.
