07.02 Peace or Power
March on Washington:
An interracial march by 250,000 blacks and whites on August 28, 1963 in Washington D.C., protesting segregation and job discrimination against blacks in the nation. Also called March for Freedom and Jobs.
Montgomery bus boycott:
This was a protest that stated enforcement for African Americans to be able to use the same transportation systems as white people. The campaign lasted from December 1, 1955, when Rosa Parks, an African American woman, was arrested for refusing to surrender her seat to a white person, to December 20, 1956, when a federal ruling.
Watts Riots:
Took place in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles from August 11 to 17, 1965. The six-day riot resulted in 34 deaths, 1,032 injuries, 3,438 arrests, and over $40 million in property damage. It was the most severe riot in the city's history.
It was not successful, for it only caused more harm than help.
It was a nonviolent march, and was successful in getting the word out that they were not ready to give up there hopes.
This event was not violent. They had African American people who refused to take the bus, until they could do it equally.
It was successful. The first day it began, only about 9 black people took the bus that day.
Based on the outcomes of the events you chose, do you think violent or nonviolent protest strategies were more effective?
I think that nonviolent protest were more effective, because it got their point across to the public in a positive way, instead of the public seeing them has harmful to the nation. Also nobody got killed or harmed in the process.
