THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT

The Civil Rights Movement
The Civil Rights Movement’s inception occurred in the 1950s and involved a struggle for
social justice for the blacks to have equal rights which were constituted in the law. The previous
Civil War abolished slavery, but discrimination never ended against the blacks. The blacks
witnessed continued and devastating racism which was common in the South. The movement
was one of the greatest mass movements in the modern United States history. The
demonstrations swept across the country and sought equality and putting to end the
discriminatory laws in the South. The movement traces its roots to the century-long effort of the
African slaves together with their descendants in resisting the racial oppression. After the
emancipation of the slaves, civil rights got granted, but the blacks still faced struggles in securing
the rights by federal protection. Using the non-violent protests, the civil rights movement made
audacious efforts during the 1950s and 1960s breaking the pattern set by public facilities that
segregated by color in the South. The group achieved a breakthrough on equal rights legislation
since the Reconstruction period. Even though the passage of the civil rights legislation in 1964
ad 1965 was a victory for the movement, the activists began seeing their struggle as a movement,
not after civil rights reforms but to confront the enduring economic and political effects of the
past racial oppression. The civil rights movement used tactics such as targeting the business
premises demanding equality and jobs in advancing their plight (Russell & Lamme, 2013). The
civil rights movement inspired the start of other movements. Understanding the movement and
the historical events that followed its inception is a key moment in history.
Events Inspiring the Movement
American history contains determined efforts that expand the scope of inclusivity of civil
rights. Equal rights got affirmed in the United States founding documents, but several inhabitants

got denied essential rights. The African slaves never had the inalienable right to life. The civil
war marked a change in fortunes for the blacks. During the Reconstruction period, the blacks
took leadership positions unlike before. The blacks held the public offices and advocated for
legislative changes on equality and rights to vote. The 14th Amendment in 1868 provided blacks
with equal protection in the law. Two years later, the blacks got a right to vote in the 15th
Amendment. However, several whites mostly those found in the South expressed discontent
since they saw the blacks as being equal to them yet once they had enslaved them. Therefore, to
marginalize them and separate them, the Jim Crow laws got established from the early 19th
century still in the South (Tindall & Shi, 2013). Some of the laws demanded that blacks could
not use the same public facilities like toilets and schools with the whites. Also, they couldn't live
in one area or town, intermarry with the whites since interracial marriage was prohibited, and
vote. Voter literacy tests existed to discourage blacks from taking part in voting. The Jim Crow
laws only got adopted in the South. The blacks in the North experienced discrimination at their
jobs and when they tried acquiring education and buying a house. Laws limiting voting by the
blacks got passed.
The primary cause of the civil rights movement bordered on the rights that the African
Americans felt was not constitutional considering what they went through especially in the
South. In the mid- the 1950s, the African Americans wanted to have more equal rights. The
movement started in the 1950s. An African- American woman in 1955 called Rosa Parks refused
to let go of her seat in the bus to a white man. She got arrested after the act of prote...
