Welcome to this site, that will teach you about the brave individuals of the
50's and 60's, who dared to take stand against racial discrimination of the American society. It starts from the era of segregation to the civil rights
movement. Through the lesson, the Photo Gallery will show pictures of the dramatic events of the civil rights movement. The passage from the
Independence, We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their
creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and
the pursuit of Happiness, meant that everyone has the same rights and equality. This was not true for everyone decades ago, especially in the south
where almost everything was segregated from water fountains to the universities.
During the mid 1900's, the African Americans have been victorious on issues, such as equal access to public transportation, right to vote, right to fair
trials, and many others. The U.S. Constitution
guarantees the rights to due process Habeas
Corpus, and equal protection under the law. The NAACP and Martin Luther King Jr., and many other were leaders of the civil rights
movement that help secure the legislation, such as the Civil Rights Acts, and in the
Integration of public transportation, schools, and jobs. Besides
the wonderful information that is in this site, you will also have access to information of some civil rights leaders, and the timeline of the civil rights
movement. As you look at the timeline, you notice that there were indications that race relations after
World War II were changing. As
the 1950ís began, however, African Americans in the south were still by law segregated from white schools and in most public
facilities. They were also kept from voting by poll taxes, literacy tests, grandfather causes, and intimidation.
Social segregation left most of them poorly educated, while economic discrimination kept them in a state of poverty. The origins of the modern civil
rights movement can be tracked back to the movement of millions of African Americans form the rural South to the urban centers of the South and the North.
African Americans could vote and by the 1940ís and 1950ís had become a factor in the politics of the Democratic Party. This site is filled with so much
information, in only one site, it is unbelievable.
