Stopping segregation on simple Things

In this century we don't think twice about doing things with different races. We think of it as a simple, normal thing. However, in the 1950's, people had to fight for their rights.

Riding Local Transport - (Buses)

Next Page

This is what happened when things got out really bad. The Coast Guard had to help transport the Freedom RIders on their buses. They had to do this because the Klu Klux Klan kept on attacking the busgoers even if they weren't part of the protesters.

This shows the aftermath of a Klu Klux Klan attack and puts into perspective just how bad they were. No one was hurt but it was scary and shows what NAACP protesters had to deal with.

This is a picture of almost all of the protesters in jail for going against segregation and being a Freedom Rider

You may not bat an eye on riding the bus with different races today, but that wasn't always the case. People called the Freedom Riders helped put an end to this by sitting and riding the bus in the 'white only' section to test out if the new law was working/being put into place/action. The Freedom Riders started on May 4th, 1961. The NAACP created them and had white and black people join in on riding the buses. They were attacked on multiple occasions by the Klu Klux Klan. Multiple people were injured, and ultimately they had to end the movement before getting to their planned destination; it was just that bad. They did, however, make an impact by both showing how bad the Klux klan was and by making a law (regulations prohibiting segregation in interstate transit terminals), this made bus drivers have to show a license about how they wouldn't be racist and segregate people on their buses.

Schools + Intergrating learning

tThis picture shows just what many African-American people endured back then. All ages fought hard for civil rights, but the Little Rock Nine had to endure much more.]

Old newspapers would cover the Little Rock Nine a lot, as it was a hot topic back then, and many people had their thoughts on it.

The guards in this image are there for the Little Rock Nine, as the people protesting against the integration became too much. The worst part is how they were harassed by both students and faculty.

Intergrating schools was another battle for African Americans, and it was a tough one. The act of school integration was a paving event in trying to desegregate America. The process initially started by many different groups of people debating whether or not to let African Americans go to school. They decided that they should let nine African Americans from Little Rock test it out, this then became what was known as the Little Rock Nine. They went through many fights againtist the Klu Klux Klan, however they eventually got through it and paved history. Many people disagreed with them going to school, but in the end it was the path to desegregation.

Voting: Rights and Protecting

This room is about voting and how Africian americians fought to earn and protect it.

This image shows just how many people cared about changing racism and segregation in the United States. It was the most memorable speech that stuck with people and made them think about it. This was a big influence on the Voting Rights Act.

This shows the fruits of the NAACP’s labors as President Lyndon B. Johnson signs the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

This is a good example of how people would do civil disobedience and fight for their rights. This what people did for the voting rights especially.

Voting was an upward battle for Africian Americans. There were many actions/acts made to make this happen. The three that I'm going to be talking about are the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Voting Rights Act and the March on Washington. During the March, Martin Luther King made his famous "I have a dream" speech,. Just the amount of audience that appeared there SHOWED HOW MANY PEOPLE WANTED TO CHANGE/help African Americans with voting rights. The NAACP made multiple attempts to get voting rights. All their efforts shaped our government in some way.
