History of the civil rights movement By:Robbie Jones, Grayson noteman, Gargaar Osman, eDward reynolds, and connor red gleason

The Montgomery Bus Boycott, in which African Americans refused to ride city buses in Montgomery, Alabama, to protest segregated seating.
The WoolWorth-segregation was still the norm across the southern United States in 1960. Early that year, a non-violent protest by young African-American students at a segregated Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina, sparked a sit-in movement that soon spread to college towns throughout the region.
The lasting impact on the United States-The Montgomery bus boycott ended almost as soon as it started. It got the court to remove segregation on busses and removed a lot of segregation. In the aftermath a group of snipers attacked a bus killing some and hit in a black pregnant woman in both legs. On January 10th bombs destroyed 5 black churches. But the final overall impact was a big step towards freedom for all black people.
The lasting impact on Rock & Roll-There wasn't any songs that were different because it didn't impact people enough because it wasn't a tragic event it was just people boycotting civil rights although there were a few tunes people would sing at those protests and they would usually go along to the theme of a kids song but with different lyrics. There was a song talking about how unfair busses were, to the beat of the wheels on the bus. Yes it may have made some people mad and annoyed built never really impacted the music industry
