THE YEARS OF CIVIL RIGHTS AND ROAD TO FREEDOM

Selma Marches

MLK speech

Rosa Parks

On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King Junior delivered a speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. It was a very important event in gaining support for Civil Rights Laws because the African-American community had been treated unfairly. The speech that came out of King's mouth was originally supposed to be short, but he felt so strongly about the injustices against blacks and their suffering of them and brought up past points he spoke about. This was one of the most iconic speeches in history.

SELMA MARCHES

On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks entered the segregated bus, and refused to give up her seat on the bus for a white person. Rosa Parks worked for the NAACP and said that she was tired of white people telling her what to do. The Montgomery Improvement Association led by Martin Luther King Jr organized the Bus Boycott. The Montgomery boycott was 99% of African Americans who decided to boycott the buses because of unfair treatment. The boycott had worked, because the bus companies realized fighting wasn't worth losing business over, and since they had already lost so much profit, they decided to choose peace.
