First Sit-In . According to the site I have indicated, and according to other Civil Rights web sites I have examined, the first sit-in of the United States Civil Rights movement occurred on 1 February 1960, when four Black students attending North Carolina Agricultural and Technical College, ente…red a Woolworth store in Greensburo, North Carolina to purchase some supplies. They then proceeded to the lunch counter in the store and asked to be served. They were refused service, as they expected. They were forced to leave when the store closed. According to the manager of the store, the first sit-in was not considered a history making event. He said, "They can just sit there. It's nothing to me."

As a result to the Civil Rights Movement African Americans are now as equal as whites. Answer That's what they would have Americans believe and although African Americans have more rights and can hold office to good jobs, there is still racism going on to this day. .Schools were de-segregated; bla…cks could sit wherever they wanted on buses; use the same drinking fountains; eat at the same restaurants; play in the same sports leagues; and many other things like that.

The civil rights movement took place because civil rights were lacking in minorities, such as African Americans, Asians, Hispanics, etc. The civil rights movement involved a lot of courage from young and old. From six year old Ruby Bridges, who was the first African American to go to a Caucasian sch…ool, all the way to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who protested, gave speeches, and gained freedom for all. One of his most famous speeches was "I have a dream." They call it that because of the words inside it: "I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: we hold these truths to be self evident. That all men are created equal." Although many people believe that all Caucasian people were on the other side, and against minority rights, there were many who were all for freedom, such as Jonathan M. Daniels. I won't go far into his history, but his work was as moving as it was inspiring. I would love to go on, but I wouldn't want to bore you. I apologize for the long answer. . ( Full Answer )
The ICRA was intended to apply to governments of American First Nations (what we unfortunately call "tribal governments"). The Act nearly mirrors the federal Bill of Rights except in three or four instances. 1) The ICRA has no counterpart provision for the federal Establishment Clause, which prohibi…ts the federal government from taking actions that serve to establish an official religion. The reason the ICRA does not have the couterpart provision is that some tribes in 1968 were theocratic (governed by religious leaders), so those tribes lobbied against including that provision in the ICRA. Theocracratic government in Indian Country is declining for a variety of reasons. 2) The ICRA has no counterpart to the federal "right to counsel" provision. This provision was excluded from the ICRA simply because many, if not most, tribes could not have afforded to provide public defenders. This also is changing for a variety of reasons. 3) The ICRA does not include a "right to bear arms" provision. In 1968 most tribes neither prohibited nor expressly allowed bearing arms, so it seems the congressional drafters of the ICRA simply got confused about a more general notion -- that the US didn't want to encourage a policy of Indians bearing arms. The biggest difference between the ICRA and federal Bill of Rights is that the federal BOR applies in a variety of contexts, criminal, regulatory,and civil. However, if the ICRA is violated, the only federal enforcement that the Act provides is a "writ of habeas corpus", which in Latin means "present the person", and it requires the appearance in court of a person who is being detained or imprisoned by a tribe. In other words, federal enforcement of the ICRA is limited to the criminal context. Outside the criminal context, the Act presumably applies to Tribes' governments, but without any mechanism for federal enforcement. Like any government, tribe governments can violate civil rights. Some tribe courts apply the ICRA against the tribe's government, and some tribe courts apply the tribes own bill of rights (which most have in some form). Most tribe courts are still having a difficult time enforcing civil rights against their own tribe government actions, usually because of a mischaracterization and misunderstanding of a tribe sovereign immunity. Also, outside the criminal context, the question becomes whether the tribe has jurisdiction, a question which itself may be a federal question and thus may invoke federal jurisdiction and enforcement. So, the ICRA "takes place" in tribe's governments, when they legislate, enforce the law, administer their governments, and in their own tribe courts when they resolve disputes. ( Full Answer )
The Civil Rights movement has never ended. Some might say it died with Martin Luther King, Jr.; not so. Others might say it ended with the voting rights act or with the end of the Vietnam War draft or the rise of hip-hop or even the election of President Obama.

There were many events during the civil rights movement, so this question is a tad vague. However, some of the more important events could be the threat to march on Washington D.C. during WWII, President Truman creating his 10-point civil rights program, the 14th amendment being passed, the revoking… of the separate but equal doctrine in 1954. All of these events were very important during the civil rights movement, I believe that the revoking of the separate but equal doctrine is amongst the most important. "Separate but Equal" is inherently unequal, by destroying that doctrine it opened up the doorway for something like the Rosa Parks incident to have a nationwide effect. ( Full Answer )
It took place in Montgomery, Alabama. Some say it also took place in washington, D.C..
No . Non-violent protest led to very rapid change in the USA including voting, educational, economic and social rights for blacks. The main reason for the success was the principal of non-violence. Because of non-violent protest, whites who benefited from Segregation but who were not overt racists… saw the truth that their non-action was wrong. ( Full Answer )

Following the Civil War, attempts were made to protect the civil rights of the newly freed slaves. The first Civil Rights Acts were passed in 1866, 1870, 1871, and 1875. Those acts tried to protect the ex-slaves rights and freedoms, like the right to sue, to be heard in jury trials, and the right t…o hold property.\nAs reconstruction ended and the Blacks lost political power in the South, there was no more federal civil rights legislation until The Civil Rights Acts of 1957 and 1960. The spark that started the modern Civil Rights movement occurred in December of 1955. Rosa Parks, a black seamstress, refused to give up her seat on a bus to a white man, as Montgomery, Alabama law required. The Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. became the spokesman for the protest that developed and led the Black boycott of the Montgomery Bus system. The result was felt nation wide. Sit ins at all White lunch counters, marches, and demonstrations forced the government to act. In 1957, the first Blacks tried to enroll in Central High School, in Little Rock. Whites and the governor blocked their way. President Eisenhower had to use troops to protect the Black students and allow them entrance to the High School.\nThe most comprehensive civil rights legislation was passed by Congress and signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibited discrimination for reason of color, race, religion, or national origin in places of public accommodation, and anything covered by interstate commerce. That included restaurants, hotels, motels, and theaters. The act also forbad discrimination in employment and discrimination on the bases of sex.\nThe Voting Rights Act of 1965 was passed to protect the right to vote. Federal observers would be placed at the polls to make sure all citizens had the right to vote. The Civil Rights Act of 1968 outlawed discrimination in housing and the selling of real estate. \nSupreme Court decisions in 1954 and 1955 declared racial segregation in public schools unconstitutional and the court's rulings in 1955 banned segregation in publicly financed parks, playgrounds, and golf courses.

Civil Rights are the rights of citizens to vote, to receive equal treatment before the law, and to share equally with other citizens the benefits of public facilities, such as schools. There were certain minority groups in the US, like Native Americans, African- Americans, and Hispanics, that were n…ot receiving equal treatment when it came to their civil rights. The modern day Civil Rights movement was an attempt by those groups, led by African-Americans on the most part, to acquire those rights that belong to all citizens. ( Full Answer )

Sit-ins during the civil rights movement occurred in many variousplaces. Some of the common places where sit-ins occurred wererestaurants, buses, and trains.
Alabama is credited for much of the movement, mostly due to news coverage of Gov. George Wallace, but took place in many other areas of the USA during the late 50's and early 60's. By the 80's, the race issue was headed toward extinction after the noble efforts by MLK, JFK and others were accepted.
In 1963, JFK sent the National Guard to the University of Alabama to force the school to desegregate. That same day, he made a speech calling for the need for a Civil Rights Bill, and the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964.
Human rights are "basic rights and freedoms to which all humans are entitled".  . The doctrine of human rights aims to identify the necessary positive and negative prerequisites for a "universal" minimal standard of justice, tolerance and human dignity that can be considered the public moral nor…ms owed by and to individuals by the mere virtue of their humanity. Such prerequisites can exist as shared norms of actual human moralities, as justified moral norms or moral rights supported by strong reasons, as legal rights at a national level, or as a legal right within international law.  Human rights advocates seek the strong protection of human rights through their effective realisation in each of these ways. The claim of Human rights is therefore that they are universal, in that they are possessed by all by virtue of the fact that they are human, and independent in that their existence as moral standards of justification and criticism is independent whether or not they are recognized and by a particular national or international legal system. or government.  . The general idea of Human rights has widespread acceptance, and it has been argued that the doctrine of human rights has become the dominant moral doctrine for regulating and evaluating the moral status of the contemporary geo-political order.  Indeed, the Charter of the United Nations which has been signed by virtually all sovereign states recognises the existence of human rights and calls for their promotion and respect. However, debate and disagreement over which rights are human rights, and about the precise nature, content, justification and appropriate legal status of those rights continues. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights has acted as the predominant modern codification of commonly accepted human rights principles and many national many international documents, treaties and instruments that have expanded on its principles and act as a collective expression of widespread conceptions of human rights by the international community. Examples of rights and freedoms which have come to be commonly thought of as human rights include civil and political rights, such as the right to life and liberty, freedom of expression, and equality before the law ; and economic, social and cultural rights, including the right to participate in culture, the right to be treated with respect and dignity, the right to food, the right to work, and the right to education. .

Although ideas of rights and liberty existed for all of human society, it is unclear how much such liberties can be described as "human rights" in the modern sense. Some historians argue [ citation needed ] that in non-Western cultures - and indeed in the West before the late Middle Ages - there was no concept of human rights, although important ethical concepts were nonetheless present. The concept of rights certainly existed in pre-modern cultures; ancient philosophers such as Aristotle wrote extensively on the rights ( to dikaion in ancient Greek, roughly a "just claim") of citizens to property and participation in public affairs.

To consider the 'Civil Rights Movement' as something which wascreated by a particular person is wrong.

PLease! The DingoBot is wrong.. nothing is repeated. 3 mainthemes are written about. When speaking about the 1960's Civil Rights movement in the UnitedStates there were several themes and more than one Civil Rightsleader. Here are some important themes of that time period: A. One of the most famou…s leaders was Martin Luther King Jr. Hisgroup (along with other groups ) was to end the various obstaclesin several Southern States preventing many Afro-Americans fromvoting. Such things like a "poll tax" come to mind, or intimidationof potential Black voters; B. King also wanted to end the violence that was created by groupssuch as the Ku Klux Klan. They were responsible for such things achurch bombings in the South; C. Groups of White people who wanted to help the Civil Rightsmovement, traveled South and some were killed and many harassed bylaw enforcement official or angry groups of Southern anti Blackpeople. King and others sought to end this type of "fear" that wasimposed on people in favor of Civil Rights; and D. One much overlooked theme of the 1960's Civil Rights movementwas a much smaller group of Afro-Americans, who formed groups ofIslamic Blacks as a method to protect themselves and to find, forthem anyway, a new religion.
