Civil Rights Movement By Steven Gutierrez Grade 8

Jim Crow Laws

Jim Crow Laws- In 1977, America introduced these laws, that segregated the Caucasian and African American citizens. These laws ended in the 1960's during the Civil Rights Movement.

Little Rock 9

The Little Rock 9- In 1956, a group of African-American students attempted to enroll in Central High School, a Caucasian school. The group was known as 'The Little Rock 9'. In one month one member of the group was suspended, and left for a school in New York, and only one member graduated to college

Importance in The Civil Rights Movement

One important event during The Civil Rights Movement, to me, was the Montgomery Bus Boycott. In 1955, an African-American woman, Rosa Parks, refused to give up her seat for a Caucasian citizen. She was then arrested, triggering the ‘Montgomery Bus Boycott’, lasting over a year.
