During the Civil Rights Movement, the Black Americans had horrible obstacles. They had an unequal world, where they were judged by their skin color and weren’t able to do certain things. They would even do peaceful protests for their freedom, but that would always turn into violence because of the police officers.
Some Black Americans started to peacefully fight back with love. It all started with Rosa Parks on how she wouldn’t give up her bus seat to a white rider knowing the consequences. She was someone they could look up to. Soon, college students would train themselves to prepare for a sit in. They knew they would be treated horribly, so they made sure they would know to fight back by not giving up their seats as well.
Women today are being treated differently in several different social areas because they don't have the same privileges men do. The Women's march in Washington D.C regarded human rights and other issues such as; women's rights, immigration reform, healthcare reform, the natural environment, LGBTQ rights, racial equality, freedom of religion, and workers' rights.
