Martin Luther King jr. is way more than just his "I Have A Dream" speech, but sadly to some people that is all he's known for.  Because of King we are no longer segregated, we have our equal rights, and most importantly we have our freedom.  So when you think of Dr. Martin Luther King jr. think of all that he has went through and done for us to be where we are today.

 we believe martin Luther king stood for a great cause and not only as a leader but conducting such marches and speeches nonviolently really showed his character to be someone different with high morals and class for not only him self but for the black community as well

Its important that everyone is informed with what has went on in the past this is something that really needs to be stressed to everyone especially the new generation coming up.

Itia's curator insight, February 5, 2014 8:19 PM

Racial segregation in the United States has meant the physical separation and provision of separate facilities (especially during the Jim Crow era), but it can also refer to other manifestations of racial discrimination such as separation of roles within an institution, such as the United States Armed Forces up to the 1950s when black units were typically separated from white units but were led by white officers. After Congress passed the Reconstruction Act of 1867, the ratification of the Fifteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1870 providing the right to vote, and the Civil Rights Act of 1875 forbidding racial segregation in accommodations, Federal occupation troops in the South assured blacks the right to vote and to elect their own political leaders. The Reconstruction amendments asserted the supremacy of the national state and the formal equality under the law of everyone within it.However this radical Reconstruction era would collapse because of multidimensional racialism related to the spread of democratic idealism (progressivism). What began as region wide passage of ‘Jim Crow’ segregation laws that focused on issues of equal access to public activities and facilities would by 1910 have spread throughout the south, mandating the segregation of whites and blacks in the public sphere.

shomarii's curator insight, February 12, 2015 12:35 AM

This article discusses how a Moorestown African American had aspirations of becoming a Marine during World War II. The article mainly discusses how he overcame the several obstacles of segregation within the military of the United States at the time. One example was being put into the cars of a train that were worse than the cars of white soldiers. Another example was being separated at lunch counters from the other soldiers. It's satisfying to learn about African Americans who contributed some way to the Civil Rights movement. It was later found out that this was one of the first African American marines. I feel that people from today can learn from people like this in the past to help solve the problems of society today.

shomarii's curator insight, February 12, 2015 12:17 AM

This is an article that discusses how several Ku Klux Klan flyers were distributed within the community of Sedalia, Montgomery to help promote the organization. These members of the KKK distributed the flyers by putting them on windshields and paper bags weighed down with rock in order to avoid being charged with trespassing or littering. This shows how segregation still exists within some areas of the United States and nothing is being done to get rid of it. As stated within the article, police are not going to investigate these flyers because the members of the KKK did not break a law. I feel as if there should be some kind of investigation to apprehend these members in order to somewhat exterminate this kind of negativity within certain areas similar to Sedalia.

Sir Al Franklin's curator insight, February 3, 2015 12:07 PM

This articles gave us a look into the lives of a few people who actually dealt with the issues of segregation during the Jim crow era. It provides first hand accounts of some events. The citizens of this macon community had to attend an all black school across town, because they weren't allowed to attend the school for whites. Once the Jim Crow laws ended, they desegregated the schools. They still faced problems in the community though. When ever they took trips to st, Louis they wweren't allowed to eat some places. Unless they waited for the whites to leave. However, the school wouldn't allow them let one set of students eat and not the other, so they rode around till they found a place. Most of these same students that experienced this still leave in Macon. segregation has ended but progression is still needed in some areas.
