Storyboard Text

  • In Nashville TN, African American protesters protested at a movie theater, and violently got  attacked by a mob, and police officers turned their head. John Lewis included this because it shows the violence that protesters had to go through while staying calm and not fighting back. This is an example of good citizenship because they legally protested while being non-violent.
  • A group of Freedom Riders were on their way to Birmingham when they were stopped by a mob. The mob burned the bus and the Riders were unable to finish their trip. Later, it is revealed that the police had allowed the mob to attack the bus even though they were aware of the mob's intent. This is significant because it shows that corruption ran deep in the hearts of people of authority as well as common people. The civil rights activists could not depend on authorities to treat them as equals.
  • When the freedom riders arrived in Montgomery, there was a mob waiting for them. The mob moved aggresively towards the bus, but John Lewis urged the Freedom Riders to stay together and remain non-violent. The beating continued until Alabama's public safety director Floyd Mann stepped in and stopped any further beatings. This particular event was included in the book because it highlights the difficulties the Freedom Riders had to endure, all while remaining non-violent in the face of violence. I chose to represent the event with African Americans who are scared and a group that appears angry at the African Americans.
  • Hundreds of the Freedom Riders are sent to the Mississipi State Penitentiary. Even while in cells, they continue with non-violent protests by singing their songs despite resistance from the officers. This particular event exemplifies the riders' unwavering will to reach their goal (desegregation) at all costs. This is an example of "good citizenship" because non-violent protests is being used to express one's will. 
  • On august 28, 1963 John Lewis and other Freedom Riders held a protest on Washington to spread their views. These leaders were hoping to lead the march to show how far they've came and what they started. Bayard Rustin, a major influence for the march on Washington, wanted John Lewis to change his speech causing them to being late to the march. John Lewis put this in the novel because he wanted to show that even great  leaders sometimes make mistakes
  • On August 28, 1963, tens of thousands of people gathered at Washington in order to take a stand against prejudice and segregation. The image above shows John Lewis delivering his speech; urging the Americans to not stand by and watch others be treated unfairly, but instead, take a stand against the law and express their free opinion. This event sums up the entire book; non-violent protests all in the focus of ending segregation. Everyone who is protesting is a good citizen for advocating for what they believe is right. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica}
