Not too many years ago, America was labeled with signs everywhere stating whether or not Black people were welcome in the area or not. White people segregated the African Americans into their own sections to separate themselves from them. Only was it a few years ago when it was legal to turn someone away from your business due to your skin color. This lead to the Civil Rights Movement in which people fought to be treated equally to whites. They fought for basic human decency that wasnt being given to them due to their tragic past.
The Civil Rights Movement in the United States was a decades-long campaign by African Americans and their like-minded allies to end institutionalized racial discrimination, disenfranchisement, and racial segregation in the United States. The Civil Rights Movement was an era dedicated to activism for equal rights and treatment of African Americans in the United States. During this period, people rallied for social, legal, political, and cultural changes to prohibit discrimination and end segregation.
