U.S History

Storyboard Text

  • The March on Washington took place in 1963 and was one of the key events in the Civil Rights Movement.
  • It was the largest rally ever held in the United States with over 200,000 participants and helped pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
  • This is also where Martin Luther King delivered his famous "I Have A Dream" speech.
  • The Montgomery Bus Boycott was a citywide boycott that was suggested on December 1st, 1955 by Martin Luther King Jr after Rosa Parks was arrested for not giving up her seat.
  • Instead of using the city bus to get around, people walked around. This cost the city a lot of money. It went on for over a year.
  • The Montgomery Boycott was extremely effective. The Supreme Court later ruled that segregated buses were unconstitutional. This was a big step in the right direction for the Civil Rights Movement.
