 the Freedom Riders were met with bitter racism and mob violence along the way, sorely testing their belief in nonviolent activism.

 

they was following in the MLK movement of solving situation without using violence

The Freedom Riders had an huge impact on history protesting about their civil rights. Then their march came to an end with the bus was attack by a large group of angry white people.

The Story of the Montogmery Bus Boycott

The Story of the Montogmery Bus Boycott | Seperate but not equal | Scoop.it

Montgomery Bus Boycott (1955) - This began with Rosa Parks refusing to sit in the back of the bus. The boycott's goal was to protest segregation in public buses.  It was an important civil rights event in that her personal actions gave strength to others to stand up to the inequalities faced.

Without the montgomery bus boycott I don't think the civil rights movement would of been as effective because the boycotting played an improtant part. This article makes me feel relived that people took a stand so that I can today sit wherever I like on a bus.

On Martin Luther King (Jr) Day, I thought it important that we take a moment to reflect upon the man. Not the distorted politically-correct, left-leaning concoction the Left has invented, but the real man and his real cause.

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
