Transcript: Civil Rights Activists Activists Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a social activist and minister who played a key role in the American civil rights movement during 1950s and 60s. He wanted equality and human rights for African Americans and economically disadvantaged people. He also took part in events like the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the 1963 March on Washington. Malcom X Malcom X Malcolm X was an activist and public voice of the Black Muslim faith. He told his followers to defend themselves against white aggression “by any means necessary.” Malcolm X became an influential leader of the Nation of Islam, and helped young blacks searching for confidence in a segregated America. Rosa Parks Rosa Parks Rosa Parks was made famous after refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama in 1955. She helped initiate the civil rights movement in the United States, and helped start a bus boycott that lasted more than a year and only ended when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that bus segregation was unconstitutional. Organizations Organizations The American Indian Movement American Indian Movement The American Indian Movement was founded to turn the attention of Indian people toward a renewal of spirituality and a belief in the connectedness of all Indian people. During the past thirty years the American Indian Movement has organized communities and created opportunities for many people in the United States and Canada. AIMs headquarters are located in Minneapolis. The Black Panther Party The Black Panther Party The Black Panther Party was a political organization that was founded in 1966 by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale to stand up to police brutality against the African American community. The Black Panthers dressed in black berets and black leather jackets, and organized armed citizen patrols of Oakland and other U.S. cities. At its peak the Black Panther Party had about 2,000 members but dropped in numbers due to deadly shootouts and FBI counterintelligence activities. The Congress of Racial Equality The Congress of Racial Equality The Congress of Racial Equality or “CORE” was founded in 1942 and became one of the leading activist organizations in the first few years of the American civil rights movement. In the early 1960s, CORE launched a series of initiatives called the Freedom Rides that were aimed at desegregating public facilities. At first CORE embraced a non-violent approach to fighting racial segregation, but in the 1960s the group’s leaders shifted its focus towards the political ideology of black nationalism and separatism. CORE was founded at the University of Chicago in 1942 as an outgrowth of the pacifist Fellowship of Reconciliation. Events Events Emmet Till was a 14-year-old African American from Chicago and while visiting family in Money, Mississippi he was brutally murdered for allegedly flirting with a white woman. The murderers where the white woman’s husband and brother. The two made Emmett carry a 75-pound cotton-gin fan to the bank of the Tallahatchie River and made him to take off his clothes. They then brutally beat him, gouged out his eye, shot him in the head and, tied his body to the cotton-gin fan with barbed wire, and threw him into the river. Emmet Till Murder Emmet Till The Montgomery bus boycott was a protest against the bus system of Montgomery, Alabama. The boycott started on December 5, 1995 and was originally only a one day boycott due to Rosa Parks controversial arrest after not giving up her seat to a white person. However, the boycott was so successful that local civil rights leaders decided to extend it indefinitely. It lasted 381 days until in 1956 the Supreme Court declared that Montgomery’s segregation laws on buses were unconstitutional. Montgomery Bus Boycott Montgomery Bus Boycott The Selma to Montgomery march was one of several civil-rights protests that was held in Alabama in 1965. In March of that year the Selma March began in hopes to register black voters in the South. The march was 54 miles long, and protesters encountered much violence from local authorities and white vigilante groups. After three days of walking the historic march was completed and successfully brought attention toward the need for national voting rights. The Selma March The Selma March During this project I learned a lot about the Civil Rights Movement and the hardships of it. During the civil rights movement it was especially hard for African Americans. However many hero’s rose to the occasion, like Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, and Malcolm X. Also, many groups were formed at this time that still stand to this day with similar goals like the Congress Of Racial Equality (CORE). Some examples of the hardships African Americans during the civil rights had to drink from different drinking fountains, use separate bathrooms, and sit on the back buses. Because of this many people started protesting and there were marches like the
