26 Civil Rights Chapter 29 Section 3
This slideshow will present an overview to a unit on Human Rights. Highlighted within this presentation will be the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950’s and 1960’s. Chapter 29 Section 3

27 The Declaration of Independence Enacted: July 4, 1776
“We hold these truths to be self evident: That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…” What does the first of two major documents in the American democratic society say? What does this mean? Do you think that the creators of the Declaration of Independence were speaking of only white Anglo-Saxon individuals in America?

28 Second-Class Citizens
Under the Jim Crow Laws, many different things were segregated: water fountains restaurants bathrooms movie theaters even cemeteries! Being excluded from the following places drove African Americans to want to fight for the rights in which they believed that they deserved. The South was the setting of these Jim Crow Laws because following the abolition of slavery in the South, white citizens refused to accept African Americans as part of society. By placing segregation signs and rules on public places, they believed they were not integrating with the same African Americans who once were their property as slaves.

29 Plessy vs. Ferguson Ruling: Separate but equal is constitutional
Thurgood Marshall

30 So, What & Who Lit the Modern Civil Rights Movement Match?
1954 ~ U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Brown vs. Board of Education 1955 ~ Rosa Parks So when did the modern Civil Rights Movement begin? Linda Brown was a fifth grade student who was denied access into a public school in Topeka Kansas. Thurgood Marshall was the lawyer of Brown and four other plaintiffs who brought the case to the Supreme Court. Sighting what is said in the 14th Amendment (which we have already seen earlier in this presentation), the judge ruled to desegregate public schools. This stood as the turning point in the fight for equality among African American citizens. Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to stand up and move to the back of a public bus in Montgomery, Alabama. A white passenger had approached Parks, who was seated in the front of the bus, and asked her to move. In the South, it was a “rule” that African Americans were to only sit in the very back of public buses and other forms of transportation, and that if a white passenger were to get on the bus and there was no seat for them, then the African American passengers were to vacate their seats immediately to accommodate that white passenger. Parks did not argue or move, and therefore was violating this “rule” that the South had created. Following Parks’ arrest, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. led a boycott/protest that entailed all African Americans refusing to use buses and other forms of transportation in support of Parks. This boycott lasted a year, and was the cause of many violent acts towards African Americans (MLK’s home was bombed). The Supreme Court was the ending factor of this boycott, ruling that the South’s “rules” were unconstitutional and illegal.

31 The South Resists “Southern Manifesto”—document protesting the Brown vs. Board decision They would use “massive resistance” against it.

32 Confrontation at Little Rock
1957 Southern states oppose the Brown vs. Board of Education decision Central High School Orval Faubus “Little Rock Nine” Just because the Supreme Court ruled in Brown vs. Board of Education that desegregation of public schools must happen, does not mean that the South accepted or acknowledged such a ruling. Central High School, however, was one public school that decided to integrate and live by the ruling in Brown vs. Board of Education. Allowing 9 black students to attend school in this Little Rock, Arkansas community created problems however. In September of 1957, these 9 students attempted to enter school but National Guardsmen dispatched by the Governor of Arkansas denied them access to the school. There were daily problems and violent acts towards these 9 students in attempts to keep them out of the public school. Finally, President Dwight D. Eisenhower ordered federal troops to escort these 9 students in to the school, and following days of this type of escort service, finally these 9 students were treated with the respect that the Supreme Court says that they rightfully had.

33 “I Have a Dream…” Who: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
What: Non-violent, motivational protest speech When: August 28, 1963 Where: Washington D.C. Attendance: 250,000 people Event called: March on Washington D.C. As mentioned before, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was an activist and key person in the Rosa Parks inspired boycott of public buses in Montgomery, Alabama. MLK became even more recognized when he spoke at the March on Washington D.C. With his “I have a dream” speech, MLK captured the attention of many politicians in Washington D.C., along with many more supporters. (Read speech at the hyperlink provided)
