Identify, describe, and analyze: what freedom meant during the Civil Rights Movement period (for white and black – and others if warranted); how that freedom was challenged or resisted by different groups; any legislation, programs, or political movements that were associated with the Civil Rights Movement period.

A

a. Throughout the duration of the Civil Rights Movement (1954-1968), people used to think of the idea of freedom in conjunction with the cause of ending the legacy of racial discrimination in America. Because of it, the Civil Rights Movement represented much appeal to both African-Americans and intellectually progressive Whites.

b. The idea of racial egalitarianism, promoted by the Civil Rights activists, was seen posing much danger to the continued dominance of White Anglo-Saxon Protestants (WASPs) in the country’s public domain. This prompted the representatives of the White supremacist groups (such as the Ku Klux Klan) to actively resist the Civil Rights Movement while going as far as killing its most publicly outspoken affiliates.

c. The most notable political developments/events that took place throughout the concerned historical era, were the Montgomery Bus Boycott (1955), the Albany Movement (1961), the March on Washington (1963), and the ill-famed Bloody Sunday (1965). These events contributed rather substantially towards promoting the idea that the enactment of racially discriminative policies in the US was no longer appropriate.
