    Once the battle began, other African Americans decided they wanted to make change. Many African American took the bus to work everyday. Along with many other aspects of culture, the bus also was segregated between whites and blacks. Black usually were forced to sit in the back. One evening a young woman named Rosa Parks just wanted to get home after a long day. She was tired and found the first place she could find. Of course once whites came on board, she was suppose to move to the back but she refused. This led to her arrest. {220px-Rosaparks_bus.jpg}
    After the arrest, a Baptist minister named Martin Luther King Jr. helped to organize the Montgomery Bus Boycott that help set the ball rolling for the Civil Rights Movement.

    1857- Dred Scott Decision A slave named Dred Scott was owned by a man from Missouri. Over time, the man moved to the state of Wisconsin which was a free state at the time. The owner moved back to Missouri, taking Scott with him. The owner died while living in Missouri. Scott claimed he was now a free man. Watch the clip to see the outcome.
    1960- Presidential election. 4 men decided to run for President. The two front runners were Stephen Douglas and Abraham Lincoln. Many southerns felt that if Lincoln won, he would end slavery. When Lincoln did win, many southerners decided this was the last straw and wanted to leave the union.

    "Separate but equal" was a phrase that continued to be a way of life for African Americans for many years. The 14th Amendment was suppose to unify our country and lead us into a better direction, but Jim Crow Laws passed around the south along with the supreme court ruling of Plessy Vs. Ferguson in 1892 continued to keep the country divided.

    Separate but equal was also found in the military as well in civilian life. African American soldiers were usually placed in different units from whites and were given different missions than others.

    King and other Civil Rights leaders stressed African Americans to not give up and to put the cause of gaining equality. The bus boycott lasted for over a year and led to legislation that made segregation of public transportation illegal in 1956.
    Small changes were taking place in America but leaders wanted to see a massive change in segregation and gain equality.
