Reaction of the People
As the Civil Rights Movement progressed, people wanted to stop them by showing violence and brutality. As many of the people bombed, tortured, and fought against African American rights, the Civil Rights Movement kept continuing. Many churches gave speeches, in order to help the African Americans visual their soon to be freedom. Although the government didn't yet approve of the Civil Rights Movement, slowly they began leading their way through the South. They managed to gather more than 17,000 African Americans to begin boycotting through the streets, getting all the African Americans to stand up for themselves. The African Americans became powerful in gaining back their rights, and hoping for a law with no segregation. Business became slow and soon started going down, because not much African Americans bought anything in public any more. They have learned to rely on themselves, and have learned to convince the other people that the Jim Crow laws were unequal. During the Civil Rights Movement, the government began restricting the laws one by one in order to gain back African Americans their rights. The changing of the laws was slowly making progress, and soon would also change the way people thought about segregation. The Jim Crow laws were soon outlawed, giving the African American people their freedom and their rights. Since the changing of the laws, the African American people were more satisfied that they didn't have to continue living with segregation no more.
