Progression of the

Civil Rights Movement

Introduction

When Harper Lee released "To Kill a Mockingbird" in 1960, the American Civil Rights movement was well underway.   Even though the story takes place in the 1930s, Atticus Finch alludes to the movement when he discusses the racial injustice of the south when he says, "Don't fool yourselves – it's all adding up and one of these days we're going to pay the bill for it. I hope it's not in you children's time."

The purpose of this webquest is to have you learn about the events that fueled the Civil Rights Movement beginning with the Supreme Court Decision of Brown vs. The Board of Ed and all the way through the March on Washington.

Task

Read through each linked section and answer the corresponding questions on a Word document.  When you are finished doing this, you will decide which part of the civil rights movement you think was the most important and write a diary entry about it.

Process

Use the websites below to answer the corresponding questions.  Then, answer the additional questions in the conclusion section.

Brown vs. Board (1954)

http://www.nd.edu/~rbarger/www7/brown.html

Why did this case go to court?

Was desegregation easy after the decision? Why or why not?

How did segregation violate the 14th amendment?

 

 

 

Emmett Till (1955)

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/till/timeline/index.html

Who was Emmett Till?

What happened to Emmett Till and Why?

What about Emmett Till’s story do you think helped ignite the Civil Right’s movement?

 

 

 

Rosa Parks and The Montgomery Bus Boycott (1955)

http://www.holidays.net/mlk/rosa.htm

Why was Rosa Park Arrested?

Since she was not the first African American woman arrested for a bus violation, why did her arrest ignite the boycott?

How did segregationists fight the boycott?

 

 

Freedom Riders (1961)

http://freedomridersfoundation.org/id16.html

Who were the Freedom Riders?

What was their purpose?

Did they encounter resistance?

Were they successful in achieving their purpose?

 

 

 

 

March on Washington (1963)

http://mlk-kpp01.stanford.edu/index.php/encyclopedia/encyclopedia/enc_march_on_washington_for_jobs_and_freedom/

How was this march different from previous marches?

Did all African-Americans support the march? If not, who were they?

What was the highlight of the day?

What was the aftermath of the march?

 

 

Conclusion

Which of these events do you think helped fuel the Civil Rights Movement the most?  Choose any character from the book and write a diary entry about the event as if you were that character.  Include details of the event and imagine how that character would react to them.
