Race in America

Race in America During the Civil Rights Movement

        Hello and welcome back to my blog! This blog's topic is once again on race in America. Obviously, race has been a major factor in the US for many years. There has been slavery, and even after that was over, there as still plenty of equality. The Civil Rights movement was an attempt to give equality to African  Americans in America. No matter how hard the road was to equality, many black men and women were determined to accomplish it. Many different actions were taken, some examples are bus boycotts and the March on Washington. Many historical figures took part in this movement like Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks. Article http://www.history.com/topics/black-history/civil-rights-movement  the Civil Rights Movement is explained in depth. The arrticle talks about a lot of events that some people may not  know of. It  also talks about what actions blacks were taking and in turn what actions whit people were taking against the movement. It is also explained that the Civil Rights Movement did have a positive outcome, not just an attempt. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was an enormous jump for  equality. The United States outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. I like this article because it gives you a viewpoint that a lot of articles fail to give. The article gives good insight on The Civil Rights Movement and race in America. 

Thank you for your time I appreciate your attention,
