Transcript of 07.02 Peace or Power Assignment

Montgomery Bus Boycott
The Montgomery Bus Boycott started when Rosa Parks took a Montgomery Public Bus to get home from work. She refused to give up her seat for a white passenger and was arrested. The NAACP fought the charges against Parks and over 40,000 African Americans supported Parks by walking, sharing rides, or taking a taxi anywhere they went.
Freedom Summer (Step 3 & 4)
There was violence, groups like the KKK killed many supporters and beat them. Many houses and churches were bombed.

It was a success in 1965.
Montgomery Bus Boycott (Step 3 and 4)
Whites responded with violence but African Americans responded with a simple boycott. M.L.K. suggested nonviolence.
Freedom Riders
The Freedom Riders Challenged the continued segregation of public transportation in many parts of the South. (CORE organized)
Freedom Riders (step 3 and 4)
There was mob violence and police brutality that exploded against riders in Alabama.

It was eventually successful! Signs were removed that specified which race could be where.
Freedom Summer
Freedom Summer was a drive to register as many African American voters as possible if Mississippi to prepare for the presidential election that year. (SNCC, CORE, SCLC, and NAACP were all involved)

The law was thrown out and laughed Rosa Parks and M.L.K. into international fame
Based on the outcomes of the events you chose, do you think violent or nonviolent protest strategies were more effective?
