Unit 4 Novel Project- The Watsons Go To Birmingham-1963
Storyboard on the civil rights movement and the bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama.
The Civil Rights Movement started in the year of 1954 and ended in 1968. African Americans did not have the same rights as Whites and were unjustly treated.
This isn't fair!
African American activists and citizens often lead movements and boycotts for their rights. One well-known boycott was the Montgomery, AL bus boycott.
The fight for justice wasn't always safe and put many innocent people in danger.
