Fall of Jim Crow Laws End of Segregation

The formation of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) were successful in getting their points across to other by protests and many other actions. In 1914, there were about 6,000 members and 50 branches and as segregation and Jim Crow Laws became a bigger problem, these branches and members greatly grew. They never gave up and were very successful in the end to put an end to Jim Crow laws that ended segregation.

Many historical figures, such as Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. have successfully contributed greatly to the fall of the unfair Jim Crow laws.

Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat for a white man to sit in her seat as a form of rebellion for her freedom.
Martin Luther King JR. lead many to follow him to fight against segregation and against laws that supported it. He gave many motivational speeches that influenced many to make a change and stand up for their rights.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 outlawed employment discrimination based on race, religion, and gender and ended most of the Jim Crow Laws. It was signed by John F. Kennedy.
From the help of historical figures, different acts, and NAACP, Jim Crow Laws where finally brought to an end, causing segregation to end.
