The impressive March on Washington in the summer of 1963 has been remembered as one of the great successes of the Civil Rights Movement, a glorious high point in which a quarter of a million people black and white gathered at the nation's capital to demonstrate for "freedom now." But for many African Americans, especially those living in inner-city ghettos who discovered that nonviolent boycotts and sit-ins did little to alter their daily lives, the great march of 1963 marked only the first stage of a new, more radical phase of the Civil Rights Movement.

    Civil rights for the African-American population existed before 1955. Many individuals expressed support for those civil rights. But, in that year of 1955 one voice rose above all others---that of Martin Luther King. From the Montgomery, Alabama bus boycott to his assassination 13 years later, Martin Luther King kept the fight for civil rights at the forefront of the national consciousness.

    Eugene "Bull" Connor (1897 - 1973) was a police chief in Alabama during the anti-segregation protests in downtown Birmingham.

    In the spring of 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. launched a series of non-violent anti-segregation protests in Birmingham, Alabama. In response, Eugene "Bull" Connor ordered his police department to use fire hoses, police dogs, and night sticks to break up the demonstrations. Images of this violent episode were disseminated worldwide and to this day symbolize the most brutal aspects of white resistance to black civil rights.

    "Factors that contribute to these changes are attributed to more than just technology as political, economic, and social structures often shape the way wars will be fought." You might try to reword this sentence if possible. Otherwise, it looks alright to me. :)

    "Does anyone ahave any suggestions for an intro to my essay? I am writing a persuasive essay regarding same sex marriage. I am against the legalization ogf this topic." There is no quick answer to your question. I support the right of all people to peaceably exercise the rights that are inalienble to all human beings-- to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness where the free exercise of those rights do no harm to others. How does one introduce a message that urges others to deprive human beings of equality under the law? And that suggests that the right to freely and lawfully associate with other people of your own choosing should somehow be infringed by government? Men and woman may join together in a relationship and marry and have protection under the law that such a civil union would provide. But some people suggest that people of the same sex-- even where they too have joined together in a domestic relationship intended to the same ends as those others of opposite sex-- should be deprived of those same legal protections. Why? Because that s the crux of it. If you want to introduce such a topic, then get to the meat of it. Get to the point of it right away. Why would you want to deprive human beings of their right to choose how their lives should be lived where their choices will do no harm to others? I know I ve yet to hear a truly persuasive argument against same sex marriage. And that s because ALL HUMAN BEINGS are born with the right to choose how they will live where their choices do no harm to others. And the laws of the land must provide equal protection to everyone-- regardless of what harmless choices they make, regardless of their race or religion or sex or sexual preference. Where the laws do not provide equal protection to all, then they are the source of tyranny and injustice. What introduction is suitable to overcome such obstacles? Again, I propose you say it how it is: "I am a homophobe [you fear homosexuals]. And I believe that to condone marriage between people of the same sex would allow them the freedom to participate in our society as equals with the protections under the law that only heterosexuals should have-- even to the exclusion of others. Because if homosexuals are allowed the same rights as heterosexuals, we heterosexuals might not be able to make all the decisions for everyone else. And we like being able to tell people how to live and don t want to lose that power." "I am also a religious fanactic who believes that because God says that homosexuality is wrong [even though the Bible doesn t actually support such a position] those of us who outnumber the homosexuals-- whether we are intolerant religious people or just ignorant hatemongers-- should punish homosexuals by making sure they don t have the equal protections under the law." Again, were I able to summon up a logical and consistent rationale against same-sex marriage, I might be able to provide you with a better introduction. But, as the old saying goes, "you can t polish a turd."
