Transcript of Peace or Power?
March on Washington
Organized by A. Phillip Randolph and Bayard Rustin. It was created to pressure the U.S. government into desegregating the armed forces and providing fair working opportunities for African Americans. It was nonviolent because nonviolent organization members started it and supported it. It was also very successful as more than 200,000 black and white Americans shared a joyous day of speeches, songs, and prayers led by a celebrated array of clergymen, civil rights leaders, politicians, and entertainers.
Montgomery Bus Boycott
Was part of the Civil Rights Movement and was a political and social protest campaign against the policy of racial segregation on the public transit system of Montgomery, Alabama. The public grew violent towards the topic of integration. The boycott was successful because it paved the road for future equality by allowing integration in public transport.
AKA Watts Rebellion; was a race riot which took place in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles from August 11 to 17, 1965. This was definitely a violent event as it resulted in 34 deaths, 1,032 injuries, 3,438 arrests, and over $40 million in property damage. The Watts Riots were not successful and actually made white think lesser of blacks at the time.
