Civil Rights movement.?

The Civil Rights Movement took the better part of two decades and deeply changed the ways in which the United States conducted itself towards its own citizens. The Cold War helped spur the civil rights movement in the sense that the government faced large attacks on its claims of freedom, equality, and democracy abroad, given its own domestic contradictions.

The Civil Rights Movement is a long-lasting fight for equality that spans nearly all nationalities and most continents of the globe to this day still. However, it is more commonly understood as that time period in the United States, during the 1950s and 1960s, where African Americans, as well as Latino-Americans, Asian Americans, and Native Americans began in earnest to finally make headway in their unending charge for freedom from the injurious injustices of inequality.

    At the midpoint of the twentieth century, African Americans once again answered the call to transform the world. The social and economic ravages of Jim Crow era racism were all-encompassing and deep-rooted. Yet like a phoenix rising from the ashes of lynch mobs, debt peonage, residential and labor discrimination, and rape, the black freedom movement raised a collective call of No More !

    By the middle of the twentieth century, black people had long endured a physical and social landscape of white supremacy, embedded in policy, social codes, and both intimate and spectacular forms of racial restriction and violence. The social and political order of Jim Crow—the segregation of public facilities—meant schools, modes of transportation, rest rooms, and even gravesites were separate and unequal.

    Resistance to Civil Government ( Civil Disobedience ) is an essay by American transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau that was first published in 1849. In it, Thoreau argues that individuals should not permit governments to overrule or atrophy their consciences , and that they have a duty to avoid allowing such acquiescence to enable the government to make them the agents of injustice. Thoreau was motivated in part by his disgust with slavery and the Mexican–American War (1846–1848).

    The slavery crisis inflamed New England in the 1840s and 1850s. The environment became especially tense after the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. A lifelong abolitionist , Thoreau delivered an impassioned speech which would later become Civil Disobedience in 1848, just months after leaving Walden Pond. The speech dealt with slavery, but at the same time excoriated American imperialism , particularly the Mexican–American War. [4]

    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.

    first paragraph: write the information you ve researched and learned about Whitman and the subject of the poem (Abraham Lincoln) , about the time period in which he s writing, and about the Civil War. second paragraph: You write down what is happening in each segment of the poem. This is where you write what you literally think is going on in the poem. third paragraph: This is where you write about the extended metaphors Whitman is using in the poem. The directions tell you which metaphors Whitman uses in this poem; that is the ship and the Captain. So, before you write about it, ask yourself what could the ship and the Captain symbolize? Again, the directions give you a hint, if you look at the last instructions for paragraph four, because they tell you about the impact of the President s life (the President, being Lincoln). So, the Captain symbolizes Lincoln. When you state that this is the metaphor and you follow it up with the lines which show this, it shows you have the textual evidence which supports your claim. It makes for a stronger essay. Then write about what the ship is. Again, look at the instructions for paragraph four on what the ship symbolizes. Lastly, paragraph four: Write exactly what is listed, how Lincoln had an impact on the country, and in what way, and also write about the grief the people experienced when he died and what it meant.

    There is only one reason if you re an American: My (British) education taught me that the American Constitution and Bill of Rights promise equality for all citizens and form one of the highest achievements of our civilisation. Either they are, or they are just so much inky paper.

    During the United States civil rights movement , many different groups fought to be treated equally by the law and in everyday life. Most of the events in the movement happened between 1865 and 1980. Many times, the movement used civil disobedience and non-violent forms of protest. In some situations, riots and armed rebellion happened. The process was long, uneven, and included many different groups and people, with many different opinions.

    Throughout history , in the United States , many groups have not been treated equally. This is called discrimination. These groups have included African-Americans , immigrants , Jews , Catholics , women , Native Americans , and other minority groups. People from some of these groups fought for equal rights during the civil rights movement.
