Transcript of Peace or Power! 7.02
Montgomery Bus Boycott
Children's Crusade In 1955 Rosa Parks sat on a bus seat. When she was asked to move for Caucasian people, she had enough and kept sitting. She was then arrested for violating city law. A bus boycott by NAACP happened right after to support Rosa. Over 40,000 African Americans stopped riding buses for over a year and were supported by Martin Luther King Jr. It was a nonviolent approach to get the rules abandoned. They were successful and the law was taken down for their efforts. Montgomery Bus Boycott In February of 1960, 30 cities in seven southern states became the place of sit-ins. This is where African Americans would go sit in a segregated area, or a place for only white people. Many were sent to jail or expelled from school but 108 cities were integrated. This meant a great success for the students who completed the task. Even though it was violent in someways but it was a nonviolent strategy, it was a very successful idea to where now nothing is segregated anymore.
Greensboro Sit-Ins The African American children/teenagers decided it was time to desegregate their schools. Several people were angry and wanted to hold onto their old prejudice ways. These African American went to white schools so that they and their children might one day be accepted as equals. It was both violent and non-violent and the children went to school while the white parents and students hurt them with prejudice at every turn. It became slowly successful, as today the schools do not matter on race or color. Children's Crusade Based on the outcomes of the events you chose, do you think violent or nonviolent protest strategies were more effective? I believe that nonviolent protest strategies were the best way to get the attention they needed to get places to become integrated. In all that I read, it seemed to work the best.
