Civil Rights Movement
The Civil Rights Movement was a series of events that occured from the mid-fifties to the mid-sixties. The events were all caused by the Civil Rights group, who fought for black equality. The events explained in this slideshow were probably had the most impact in this era.
The infamous sit-ins occured in more southern states. These events provoked attention, and those who participated were likely to be beaten and/or arrested. No matter the consequences, the groups kept participating in the sit-ins.
On September 15, 1963, 4 girls were changing after Sunday School. Suddenly, a bomb went off, killing all of them. The bomb was found to be placed by the Ku Klux Klan, and was a 'warning' as to stop fighting for desegregation. This only angered the group.
In conclusion, these events were quite serious and had a huge impact on the civil rights movement and American citizens themselves. These were hard times, but the Bombing of Birmingham and the Sit-in beatings had to have the most impact at this time.
