DBQ Outline

1. Civil Rights/Legislation

  • Before the Civil Rights Movement of the late 1960’s began, small concessions to the African-American freedom/equality cause had been made (Document C, Desegregation of Armed Forces)

  • New legislation to better the lives and experiences of blacks in the United States was written and enacted, due in part to 1) the assassination of JFK and a desire to continue his pro-desegregationist views and 2) to the marches and protests of Civil Rights leaders like MLK, Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, etc. who fought for the freedom of blacks (Documents B - Brown v. Board ruling, D - Voting Rights Act, and E - Civil Rights Act)

2. Civil Rights/Society

  • Blacks were organizing rallies, marches, and protests to try to bring attention to their plight. At these protests, however, the hatred and bigotry of many whites (especially Southern whites) was displayed, and many people ended up receiving injuries or being jailed (Document G - fire hoses used against protesters in Birmingham)

  • Even after the passing of the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Act, most whites still didn’t want to desegregate, and government and military intervention became necessary to enforce the laws that had been passed to ensure equality for African-Americans (Documents A - Desegregation of Central High School and F - 101st Airborne and Little Rock 9)

  • There were some white leaders who agreed with the blacks’ fight for freedom and equality and supported their cause. They didn’t, however, agree with the methods employed to help reach the goals of the Civil Rights Movement’s leaders, even though such methods were peaceful and nonviolent (Document H - article from Birmingham News)

Main Points

  • Small concessions were made to bring some justice to blacks

  • Civil Rights Movement angered and frightened some people who resisted desegregation and black equality and showed it ostentatiously

  • Movement gained support from leaders who agreed with the cause but not necessarily the methods

  • Efforts of blacks and assassination of sympathetic JFK led to passing of Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act despite fervent opposition
