identify at least two (2) events of the 1960s which you believe spurred the Civil Rights Movement forward. Explain the key ways in which the events that you have identified supported the movement. Provide a rationale for your response.
On May 4 1961, the Freedom Riders, composed of seven African-American and six
white activists, leave Washington, D.C. for the rigidly segregated Deep
South. Organized by the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), their goal is to test Boynton v. Virginia.
On August 28 1963, the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom is held in D.C. Around 250,000 people participate, and King delivers his legendary "I have a dream" speech.
The two events supported the events by giving the people power to demonstrate and push forward in their quest.
