THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT

Despite measures such as the Civil Rights Act of 1875, segregation of blacks and whites in schools, on buses and in parks and other public amenities had long been a fact of Southern life. During and after the Second World War there was a stirring of active resistance. Then came the spark that set a mass movement alight. In 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, a 41-year-old black seamstress, Mrs Rose Parks, sat down in the white section of a bus and refused to budge. She was arrested and ordered to pay a fine. Outraged black leaders, including the young Martin Luther King, who had just arrived in Montgomery as minister of one of its churches, organised a boycott of the bus line, which eventually backed down and desegregated its facilities.

King, influenced by the ideas of Gandhi, steered the movement towards nonviolent resistance. Using peaceful boycotts and sit-ins, its members obliged transport companies all across the South to desegregate. This was followed by desegregation in libraries, university canteens, department stores, cinema; supermarkets. Spurred on by the Civil Rights March on Washington in August 1963, Congress finally passed measures that forbade discrimination in public amenities, that penalised segregated schools and ensured black voting rights.
