New Orleans Boycotts of Dryades and Canal Street Stores and Lunch Counters
These boycotts occurred on two specific streets in New Orleans during the early 60s. The stores on these two streets had predominantly white owners, and would not serve blacks. The two main groups organizing these boycotts were the SCLC and the CLGNO.
Baton Rouge Bus Boycott
This boycott, commonly known by many as one of the first Civil Rights Boycotts, occurred during the year 1953. The purpose of this boycott was to prove that the laws forcing blacks to sit in the back of the bus, even if there were empty seats in the front, were un-constitutional.
