During the Civil Rights Movement, African Americans in the US determinedly fought for the right to be equal through various ways. There were organizations and group events that people did to protest peacefully. For example, the SCLC was an organization that aimed to non-violently advocate for AA rights. SCLC would gather people together to march or protest in the buildings. In addition, AA would also do boycotts, like the Montgomery Bus Boycotts, and would go against segregation laws. However, some AA felt that violent protest was more efficient. For instance, the Black Panthers were a group of AA who would riot and at times use violence to get their message across. Another example, Watts Riots which was considered one of the worst ones ever. To conclude, during this era, AA people fought for their rights through violent and nonviolent ways as they were tired of the mistreatment.
