Images of the Civil Rights Movement
After the Emancipation Proclamation, African Americans in the Southern States still had to fight against the inequality stemming from segregation and other forms of oppression. Many history books and recounts characterize the movement as civil resistance. From 1955 to 1968 dialogue between activists and government authorities discussed the inequities faced by African Americans. Several forms of protests and/or civil disobedience such as the Montgomery Bus Boycott in Alabama, Greensboro sit-ins in North Carolina, and Selma to Montgomery marches in Alabama were just a few of the many nonviolent activities.
There are a number of images taken during the Civil Rights Movement. Each photo documents the fight for equality. There are no words that will do any of these images justice however, the brave faces displayed reveal bravery and speak volumes.
