Civil Rights March, Washington, 1963. The following year, the Senate Democrats led the longest filibuster in history against the Civil Rights Act. Leading the filibuster were Byrd, who served for WV through 2010, and Al Gore, Sr. Gee, they don't teach that in school, do they? /// I learned this in school back in the 60's in CA
Civil Rights March, Washington, 1963. - I remember this as we weren't allowed to go visit our grandparents in DC at the time. We lived in VA and going into DC all the businesses had bars over the windows and doors. Very unusual to see. Yet our grandparents lived across from African Americans. Couldn't understand the issue at the time.

Child of the Civil Rights Movement by Paula Young Shelton, illus. by Raul Colon 2009. Picture book, elementary on up.
The book covers the events that took place during the Civil Rights Movement through the perspective of a young African- American young girl. This book is a great read during Black history Month and to teach students about events that took place in real life.
AS - This book is written in the perspective of a young African American girl who grew up in the Deep South during the civil rights movement. Great way to see how her experiences were different than that of an adults.
Paula Young Shelton is the author of this book and the niece of Martin Luther King. This book teaches about the civil rights movement and what it was like for African Americans during that time. AN

Memphis sanitation workers strike in 1968 with "I Am A Man" posters
"I am a man" picket signs carried by striking Memphis sanitation workers in 1968 I know no words that would fully express the degree of outrage and astonishment with which I am following the evolution of the protests in the States. There is no logic in what is happening and has been happening to African American people there for the past 500 years. Sometimes, I think I can relate to their plight as I, myself, belong to a class of second-rate citizens in Italy, who have been robbed of their resources, dignity and value since the unification of the country. But then I think not. Nothing compares to what they have been forced to go through. I am enraged.

Prominent figures of the African-American Civil Rights Movement. Clockwise from top left: W. E. B. Du Bois, Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr.
Taking place in the 1950s and 1960s, it’s the struggle of African Americans to free themselves of racial discrimination by fighting for equal rights as the whites in employment, education, voting, housing, etc. Also called the Second Reconstruction, it began in December 1955 when a lady named Rosa Parks from Alabama, refused to give up her seat in a bus to a white man and was arrested for this.

Photographer Cecil Williams drinking at white only fountain (1964). He had a "SENSE OF HUMOR .......Or a DEATH WISH!! #CivilRights #NoColorLines
Black History. It's really White History. But I'd be happy if they just called everything AMERICAN history. Why differentiate? And of course that would also include Native Americans.
A black man fearlessly drinks out of a "white only" water fountain when segregation was at its worst. This photo caught my eye because it displays something I haven't seen in many civil rights pictures: humor. He seems to almost be daring the person behind the camera to challenge him.
Black History This Is The Time When Blacks Couldn't Do The Same Things White People Could Do. i love this photo
Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you're a man, you take it. Malcolm X #history #malcolmx #blackhistory #photography #freedom
Black History This Is The Time When Blacks Couldn't Do The Same Things White People Could Do.At 11 years old I saw an elderly african american get on a bus. He was old, crippled and looked so weary as he dutifully walked to the rear of the bus. Thank God I saw it because it changed me forever.
