The bus boycott happened on December 5,1955 to Dec. 20,1956. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man and that's when the boycott happened, black people refused to ride the public buses. This was to protest against segregated seating in Montgomery. I like this event because the Rosa Parks story is really interesting to me.
March on Washington
The Little Rock crisis happened on September 4,1957 where a group of 9 black students enrolled and walked into an all-white school, they were escorted in by the police. This was important because it was a test of the Brown v. Board saying that segregation in public schools is unconstitutional. I picked this event becuause the students showed thta they have a right to go to that school.
We want rights.
The sit-in movement was on February 1,1960 where black people and blacks students would go to a segregated counter and ask for service. When denied they refused to leave. They employed the tactic of non-violent direct action and was a pivotal event during the civil rights movement. I chose this event because it was a powerful way to show that they will fight for there rights even if It brought pain.
Barack Obama Campaign
Vote me for president
The march on Washington happened on August 28,1963 where civil rights leaders and 250,000 people gathered in front of the Lincoln Memorial, it was a massive protest. It was important because it helped create a new national understanding for the of the racial and the economic injustice. I chose this event because everyone joined together and fought for their freedom.
We want jobs and freedom.
The Selma march was on march 7, 1965 where protesters marched a 54 mile route from Selma to the capital of Montgomery. Martin Luther King Jr. joined too. This event was important because it was to exercise their constitution right to vote. I picked this event because everyone was together and was going to walk those miles to get to their freedom.
The Obama campaign happened in 2008 where Brack Obama ran for president and won.This event was important because Obama was the first African-American president. I picked this event because it was a big moment in the history of presidents.
