Dr.King & The Civil Rights Ciandra 641 This presentation is about Dr. Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement. Dr. Martin Luther King was a civil rights activist. He fought for peoples rights so that everyone could be treated fairly and so that there was no segregation. Unfortunately he was assassinated on April 4, 1968, at the age of 39. He was rushed to St. Josephs Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 7:05 pm. Even though he's not with us physically, his dream will live on inside all of our hearts. Dr. King Rosa Parks was another civil rights activist. She was most famous for refusing to give up her seat. It was December 1, 1955. A 42 year old woman got on the Montgomery City bus that evening. That woman was Rosa Parks. She worked as a seamstress. She was coming home from a long day at work like everyone else. She sat just 10 rows behind the seats reserved for the white people. It was toward the middle of the bus. The bus was packed, so when a white man boarded the bus, the bus driver insisted that four black people, including Rosa Parks get up from their seats. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat. She was a local member of the NAACP( National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). She was then arrested. She was convicted of violating the laws of segregation. Local civil rights activists organized a boycott against the Montgomery bus system. About 75% of Montgomery riders were black people so that had a serious economic threat towards the company.The boycott ended on December 20, 1956 and the bus companies allowed all bus riders the rights to an empty seat. Rosa Parks Marva Collins I Had A Dream... ... And it still lives on Marva Collins opened her own school for kids with needs for special help. She did not agree with the way that black children weren't allowed to have as good of a learning environment as the white kids. The school that she opened was on the second floor of her own home. RUBY BRIDGES ~ the first african american child to attend an all white school ~ she attended William Frantz Public School in New Orleans ~ she was around 6 years old when she attended an all white school

Don't follow the path. Go where there is no path and start a trail.

Ruby Bridges Let us all hope that the dark clouds of racial prejudice will soon pass away, and that in some not too distant tomorrow the radiant stars of love and brotherhood will shine over our great nation with all their scintillating beauty.

Martin Luther King, Jr., Letter from Birmingham Jail QUOTES “The essence of teaching is to make learning contagious, to have one idea spark another.”

Marva Collins The only tired I was, was tired of giving in.

Rosa Parks More Pictures The civil rights movement is the reason that black and white people can be in the same school or classroom at the same time. It's the reason you see this... Instead of this... So take a moment to thank those civil rights activists who changed your life.
