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 school, 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.

The 1960s during the civil rights movement

It took place in 1848.
In 1875 there really wasn't a civil rights movement. This is only 10 years after the civil war and Jim Crow laws were in full effect. It will take another 80 years before there is a true civil rights movement.
The arrest of Martin Luther King Jr., forced John F. Kennedy to take meaningful action in support of the civil rights movement. The 1960's were turbulent in the area of civil rights.
Sit-ins during the civil rights movement occurred in many various places. Some of the common places where sit-ins occurred were restaurants, buses, and trains.
The Civil Rights movement succeeded for several reasons. Television helped gain supporters for the movement. TV showed how some blacks were being treated. Take Bloody Sunday, for example. Many blacks were injured for peacefully marching in the streets. This event was shown on TV, and many Americans were appalled at what they saw. Great leaders of the civil rights movement such as Martin Luther King Jr. contributed to the success of the movement. The civil rights movement was also very organized. Strategies such as sit-ins, bus boycotts, freedom rides, and marches were organized, so many civil rights believers participated. Civil rights believers were very passive, too, which was an effective strategy.
From the earliest beginnings of this country (America), even as a British colony, some people have had some civil rights. The civil rights movement has been about giving more rights to more categories of people. This process is by no means complete. Civil rights, therefore, are still in the process of taking effect.
