In other words, most of the civil right leaders were African Americans who wanted to stop segregation and have equal rights. Therefore, African Americans listened to civil right leaders, because their courage and knowledge helped African Americans during the civil right movement. Martin Luther King Jr. made African Americans aware that changes needed to be made when it came to segregation laws. Segregation was a way for white society to separate themselves from African Americans. Segregation dehumanized African Americans, because they were always treated like outcast.
Ever wondered how segregation was abolished and African-Americans truly gained their liberty? Well, there were several significant people including Martin Luther King Jr, Rosa Parks, and Thurgood Marshall who made a tremendous difference in the movement. Their morals and values were that one day people could look at each other the same and not see color, but rather a human being. They put these values out on display in their courageous actions such as the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the “I Have a Dream” speech, which set the path for our great country even today. Therefore, the Civil Rights movement was an important event for the African-American community dues to the fact that is marked the end of segregation, uplifted African-Americans, and United States history forever.
The civil rights movement proved successful in achieving equal rights for Black Americans, despite strong opposition. Black Americans got equal rights because of the untiring efforts young people, like Anne Moody, had. Without the efforts of these young people, the role of Black Americans in society may have been different today.
Lawsuits had been tried to gain rights such as the unsuccessful Plessy v. Ferguson in 1896 and the successful Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. Although, the Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka declared the “separate but equal” clause unconstitutional, de facto segregation continued in the South. During the 1960s, two methods were used: nonviolence and violence. Violence proved to be ineffective since it perpetuated social tensions among Whites and Blacks. Nonviolence was the most effective method in bringing social change in America during the 1960s Civil Rights Movement because it attracted sympathy towards Black people, provoked positive media attention, and promoted unity among African Americans.
There were many different aspects of factors that helped Black people gain Civil Rights. Television was one of these factors but also it was down to other types of technology to help black people get their views across to people. Two of these people are Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, these men are known as two of the most devoted and influential people in black history. The blacks of America craved basic civil rights, as they couldn't have any view for themselves without it. The civil rights movement started in the end of the 1950s and various protests broke the pattern of racially segregated public facilities in the South and achieved the most important breakthrough in equal-rights legislation for blacks in America.

Working hard for recognition of whites is similar to slavery and furthermore, would give satisfaction to whites. DuBois had a firmer solution which argued that African-Americans, specifically males should receive higher level education and be in “The Talented Tenth”. DuBois makes the claim “The problem of education, then, among Negroes must first of all deal with the Talented Tenth; it is the problem of developing the Best of this race that they may guide the Mass away from the contamination and death of the Worst, in their own and other races.” (DuBois “Talented Tenth”). This philosophy benefits all black people because it strengthens the community and inspires other blacks to want to pursue an education. Without higher level education there wouldn’t be enough teachers to teach industrial and vocational work.
Washington Wanted schools to be a place where people learn to make life more endurable, and if possible, attractive. He wanted an education that would relieve him of the hard times at home, immediately( Kenyon.edu). He was an outstanding educational leader who promoted education for African Americans. He made it possible that today many Black people are inspired to go to school and make something of themselves. He was one of the first black men to promote education among the African-American population.
Desegregation provided many African Americans with a chance to have a better education leading to a greater chance of becoming successful. Desegregation came into effect in the year 1964, one hundred years after the end of the Civil War and mainly took place in the southern states.

Continuous effects of desegregation include desegregated schools, better education for African American people, and African American punishments
