Southern communities refused to accept the brown decision. The supreme court handed down a second brown ruling. In little rock, Arkansas refused to let nine black kids to attend Little Rock’s central High School , so President Eisenhower sent in federal troops to allow the students to enter the school. In Montgomery Alabama it was a requirement for blacks to give up their seat to a white but one day a Montgomery resident Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man. Of course Ms. Park was arrested. But after the arrest blacks in Montgomery started the yearlong boycott of the cities bus system , but they still needed that one person to speak out for all of them . That person who no other then Dr. Martin Luther King , Jr. The boycott lasted for 381 days , Finally the supreme court ruled that segregated buses were illegal.

49 George Wallace- Gov. of Alabama

50 George Wallace- Gov. of Alabama
University of Alabama Vivian Malone and James Hood, two black students, ventured to integrate the University of Alabama in They were denied admission to the university by Gov. George C. Wallace, who famously vowed to protect segregation by “standing in the schoolhouse door.” President John F. Kennedy mobilized the Alabama National Guard, and Gov. Wallace was ordered to step aside as the students enrolled. (Alabama Sports not integrated until 1970)

51 CORE The Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) was one of the nation’s older civil rights groups. It was formed in 1942.As the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s grew, CORE became more active.

56 Who was Joe Dan Gold? Joe Dan Gold dies at age 68
Updated: April 14, 2011, 3:28 PM ET Associated Press STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Former Mississippi State basketball player and coach Joe Dan Gold has died after a lengthy illness. He was 68. Gold, a Benton, Ky., native, averaged 12.3 points and 7.8 rebounds per game from 1961 to 1963 as the Bulldogs won or shared three Southeastern Conference titles. During his career, Mississippi State had a overall record, including 36-6 in SEC play. The 6-foot-5 Gold was a team captain as a senior, leading the Bulldogs to their first NCAA tournament appearance in 1963, where they lost to Loyola of Chicago in the first round. It was the first game Mississippi State played against black players. Gold also coached at Paducah Community College and Mercer in the 1970s before going into high school administration in Kentucky. (Superintendent Williamstown)

57 Joe Dan Gold Joe Dan Gold was a fine basketball player at Mississippi State back in the 1960s and later became the head coach in Starkville. He was part of a great story about college basketball that tells you how far we have come as a nation. MSU won the SEC in 1963 but in the first round of the NCAA Tournament the Bulldogs were paired against Loyola of Chicago, which started four blacks. Governor Ross Barnett of Mississippi ordered Mississippi State to stay home rather than play a team with black players and the Mississippi Legislature issued a court-backed injunction that forbid the game. Coach Babe McCarthy defied the legislature and sneaked his team out of the state in the dead of the night. Mississippi State lost that game to Loyola, which would go on beat Cincinnati and deny the Bearcats a three-peat, but the great story was a courageous coach and a courageous team that was willing to stand up for what was right. We've come a long, long way since then, haven't we?

61 Riding for Freedom- “freedom riders” 1961
The Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) was one of the nation’s older civil rights groups. It was formed in 1942.As the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s grew, CORE became more active. The activist were known as freedom riders. Many riders were met by angry mobs that attacked and beat them. As more attacks occurred, the Kennedy administration stepped in. it sent U. S. marshals to protect the freedom riders. The commission outlawed segregation in all interstate travel facilities. These included waiting rooms, restrooms, and lunch counters.

66 The Triumphs of a Crusade: Civil Rights Era

67 The Movement Spreads. Dr. King was a preacher , nonviolent, he based his ideas on the teachings of several people . From Jesus , he learned to love one’s enemies. King joined with other ministers and civil rights leaders in They formed the southern Christian leadership Conference (also known as SCLC) Not to late after that another group emerged The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) the member of this group was mostly college students who thought change for African Americans was occurring too slowly. One protest was the sit-in. The sit-in was African Americans sat at the whites only lunch counters . They refused to leave until they were served . In 1960 Black students staged a sit-in at a lunch counter at a woolworth’s store in greensboro , North Carolina . The students sat there while whites was hitting them, calling names , poured food over there heads, even some went to jail Soon after that it paid off because students had desegregated lunch counters in 48 cities in 11 states (( pictures on next page ))

68 Standing Firm Another confrontation occurred. In 1963 in Birmingham, Alabama. There, King and other civil rights leaders tried to desegregate the city. Police attacked activists with dogs and water hoses. Many Americans witnessed the attacks on television they were outraged by what they saw. Eventually, Birmingham officials gave in. they agreed to end segregation in the city. The civil rights movement impressed president Kennedy. He was convinced that the nation needed a new civil rights law. Kennedy called Congress to pass a sweeping civil rights bill. Civil rights workers soon turned their attention to integrating southern schools. In September 1962, a federal court allowed James Meredith to attend the all-white University of Mississippi. However, Mississippi’s governor refused to admit him. The Kennedy administration sent in U.S. marshals. They forced the governor to let in Meredith.

69 March on Washington 1963 200,000 gathered at the Lincoln Memorial
King’s Speech “Let Freedom Ring” “I have a Dream” “Let Freedom Ring” “Free at Last, Free at Last, thank God Almighty, we are Free at Last” JFK– Not fully behind the Civil Rights Law….yet John Lewis- SNCC also spoke

70 Marching to Washington
On august 28, 1963, more than 250,000 blacks and whites marched into the nations capital. There, they demanded the immediate passage of the bill. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., spoke to the crowd. He called for peace and racial harmony in his now famous “ I have a Dream” speech. Several months later, President Kennedy was assassinated. Lyndon Johnson Became President. He won passage in congress of Kennedy's Civil Rights Act of 1964

71 Dr. King’s Dream

72 Fighting for Voting Rights
Civil rights activists next worked to gain voting rights for African Americans in the south. The voting project became known as Freedom Summer. the workers focused their efforts on Mississippi. They hoped to influence congress to pass a voting rights act. Robert Moses was a former New York City School Teacher. He led the voter project in Mississippi. The project met with much opposition and violence. Make this into two slides At the 1964 Democratic National convention, SNCC organized the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP). The new party hoped to unseat Mississippi’s regular party delegates at the convention.

73 Voting Rights Civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer spoke for the MFDP at the convention. She gave an emotional speech. As a result, many Americans supported the seating of the MFDP delegates. However, the Democratic Party offered only 2 of Mississippi’s 68 seats to MFDP members. In 1965, civil rights workers attempted a voting project in Selma, Alabama. They met with violent resistance. As a result, Martin Luther King, Jr. led a massive march through Alabama. President Johnson responded by asking congress to pass a new voting rights act. Congress passed the Voting Rights act of The eliminated state laws that had prevented African Americans from voting.

74 Mississippi Burning: Part 2

78 THE END

79 Civil Rights Era Challenges & Changes in the movement
UNITED STATES HISTORY Civil Rights Era Challenges & Changes in the movement

80 Africans Americans Seek Greater Equality (Continue)
As African Americans move towards the Northern cities after world war II the segregation increased. Many white people left the cities and moved to suburbs because of the move. By mid-1960s, many African Americans lived in decaying urban slums. Had to deal with poor schools an low employment. This angered people and raised African Americans violence against whites.

81 New Leaders Voice Discontent
Malcolm X a leader that preached African Americans rights. He was the head of the Nation of Islam (Black Muslims). Malcolm X declared that whites were responsible for blacks misery. He also urged African Americans to fight back when Attacked by whites. Stokely Carmichael also a black leader. He introduced the notion of Black Power. This movement encouraged African Americans pride and Leadership.

82 New Leaders voice discontent (Continues)
Malcolm soon changed his policy regarding violence. He urged them to vote an use peaceful means to win equality. Black Panthers a political party. Created to fight police brutality. Urged violence against whites. Many Whites feared this group of African Americans .

83 1968-A turning point in Civil Rights
James Earl Ray shot an killed Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis, Tennessee. His death made many African Americans get more angry and violent towards whites. Also a man shot an killed Robert Kennedy. He strongly supported Civil Rights. Kennedy had been seeking the Democratic nomination for president when he was killed by Muslim radical Surhan Surhan.

84 Legacy of the Civil Rights Movement
Kerner Commission a group that President Johnson formed. To study the cause of urban violence. One major cause in these cities was white racism. The Civil Rights Act of 1968 banned discrimination in housing. Also led to the banning of segregation in education, transportation, and employment.

85 Legacy of the Civil Rights Movement (continue)
Even though they have fixed some racism problems still many remain. Whites continue to flee the cities. An whites continue to face high unemployment. Affirmative Action is a program to involve making special efforts to hire or enroll minorities.

86 Malcolm x shacking hands with Martin Luther King Jr. 
