A troubled times

From 1955-1965 there was a war in Central America. No, this is a war like World War or the War of Independence. It was a war for the heart and soul of this country to determine once and for all if America really going to be a land of equal opportunity for all. This is a war that eventually took the name "Civil Rights Movement."

We must make no mistake, this is not just shouting match. Some events still remember it very brutal and deadly. Those who fought in the war on both sides are serious about the causes they represent and are ready to fight and even die to hear the success of your case. The war waged for years steady progress has been made but not without great sacrifice for the leaders of the movement dedicated to giving new meaning to the phrase "set my people free."

Throughout black history, there may be more important since the Civil War, when the rights of African Americans was fought and won. Tension in developing countries. When the Supreme Court mandated school segregation in the landmark case Brown v. Board of Education, the stage is set. But this is December 1, 1955, when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, a white man's movement finally take shape and be a titanic struggle for the rights of African Americans in the United States. The first fight is the first line of one of the most important struggle for civil rights era, the Rev.. Martin Luther King.

Intense struggle for freedom is never easy and often marked by violence. Over the next ten years some of the most important milestones in black history occurred as the ...

* 1957 - President Eisenhower sends federal troops in Texas to be admitted to Central High School by nine black students of color.

* 1960 - A sit-in at Woolworth's in Greensboro North Carolina canteen set the stage for non-violent resistance is used with great success for the rest of the battle. Nonviolent protest and civil disobedience became a staple of the civil rights movement because of the influence of Martin Luther King.

* 1963 - historic in Washington in which more than 200,000 people gathered to hear Dr. King's famous "I have a dream" speech.

* 1964 - President Lyndon Johnson signed into law the most important event of his presidency and that he believed deeply in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

* 1965 - Allocation of Malcolm X and the race proper wattage.

* 1965 - President Johnson to take bold steps to accelerate the civil rights movement, the implementation of measures correlated when the issue Executive Order 11 246.

This list is just a few of the highlights of these troubled times that the rights of all Americans, black and white and all colors are redefining both in the streets, courts and others are not other branches of government. In coming years there will be a breakthrough. Individually, all areas of American life to see the progress of African Americans in sports, education, recreation, and politics. There are many moments of pride and sadness when a great and brutal acts committed by people both black and white. But despite the struggles, the company continues to grow and adapt to people will be as it always has been a tradition in American culture.

Fight far from over. Discrimination and hatred still a problem today. And while it's easy to reflect on the day-to-day struggle with regret, we can also look with pride. We can be proud of the great leader who displayed great courage and wisdom to lead this country in a better quality of life. And we can be proud of America because this is where the battle could lead to equality and freedom for all citizens, not just some.
