An Examination of the Black colored Civil Rights Activity in the 1950's and 1960's in the United States

The Black Civil Rights movements in the 1950's and 60's was a political, legal and public struggle of the dark-colored Americans to get full citizenship rights and gain racial equality. The dark struggle for Civil Rights was very difficult. No group in the us has or has already established more difficulty assimilating in to the American Culture. Segregation was started by white colored American southerners to split up everything between the blacks and the whites. It had been also is aware of as the "Jim Crow" system and became prevalent to the southern. Everything practical was separated between your blacks and the whites; schools, toilet, transportation, restaurants had been all separated, the blacks were poorly funded when compared to whites (Branch 72). The black people tried to struggle discrimination against them whenever you can. The most significant one through the early on 50's was the Montgomery Bus Boycott in Alabama led by Martin Luther King. On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks was informed to stop her seat on a town bus to a white person (Hampton 13). When she refuses, she was arrested which caused protest by the dark network. Martin Luther King in those days was president of the Montgomery Improvement Association, which organized the protest. These actions included marches, demonstrations, and boycotts. The violent white colored response to black immediate action eventually forced the government to confront the problems of injustice and racism in the South. It produced him a national shape for fighting the privileges of the Black Us citizens. Civil rights became the crucial test out of the l960s. Leadership originated from black political and religious organizations including the Congress on Racial Equality, the College student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, and Martin Luther King's Southern Christian Leadership Council Sit-ins, Liberty Rides, and other varieties of nonviolent protest
