African Americans History

Rosa ParksParks has to be one of the biggest African American leaders to stand up when she was facing segregation. What Rosa Parks did was refuse to give her seat up when she was sitting in the front of the bus, where only the white people were suppose to sit. She was then arrested for doing so but is continued to be known for standing up to the segregation happening on the bus and is now known as the "mother of the civil rights movement".

Challenges for the African Americans:




Get Inspired

Slavery ended in 1865 after the Civil War when the 13th Amendment was adopted. Now slavery is not happening in Washington or in the United States, as well as most of the world. Letting the African Americans get their equal rights and being free!

I think discrimination is something that, sadly, will never completely end. I would have to say that it has gotten so much better then in the times were slavery was happening, and just in the past in general. I feel like its looked more as a wrong thing to do now in days, so that obviously helped stop a lot of it. More people stand up togethor now.

In 1964 the Civil Rights act ended all laws accepting segregation. Segregation back then again was done in schools, resturants, buses, and in so many local places everywhere. But now there is no more allowed segregation and everyone is allowed wherever, not depending on the color of your skin.

One of the biggest events that happened and changed things, for the better, for all colored people was Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech. This speech, given on Agusust 28, 1963, was a very powerful speech that called for an end of racism to the United States I feel like his speech will be talked and learned about forever and he made a great point in everything. Making people realize that they can stand up togethor to fight racism.
