These are an initiative project meant to better comprehend the shaping of the south by the liberation movement of the blacks and women, in the war of Vietnam their natural calamities and the conservative politics that they practice. In addressing the civil right movement, I am going to discuss the race and its practice in the public schools, economic justice and gender and sexuality. The period for which the action occurred was lengthened from the 1930s to 1970s, and it was spread extending beyond the American south, and it was seen as a problem with some fronts countrywide. It has become vital to illustrate the civil rights association as the fight that extended the Mason-Dixon Line and went through until the 1970s
The civil rights movement is located in the northern civil right fights in the main cities like Detroit and New York. Their conflict was different from that experienced in the Birmingham and Selma even the cultural, Political and economic climate was different from the northern cities as compared to the southern cities (Hall, 2015, pp 143-150). The Border States such as Maryland shows not only similarities but also vast differences between south and Northern fight for civil rights. This regional difference was noted by some African American scholars among themselves by citing the unique variations of the south in their fictional and non -fiction works.
The south stayed put and played a contradictory role in influencing gay liberation and women activities. Gay rights activists and feminists added experience when the southern black liberty movement which happened in 1970s.They not only fought for equality and freedom but also sexuality and gender. These made the South gain national recognition for organizing a resistance for equal rights and advocating for the gay Rights creativities. Both gay activism and feminist movements in the south were affected by issues of class and race.
The achievements of the movement of civic human rights in America around 1960s was put in a heading called de jure segregation which is law grouped systematically to distinct the rights of various people. They are as follows; the right to publicly funded education, right to use public facilities, right to voting after registering, visit of restaurants and hotels, getting rid of the back entrance to business which helps the public (Morris, 2014, pp 10). These laws were known as Jim Crow law in the south, and they were in place for almost a century.
It should be noted that getting rid of such laws has not ended segregation and possible discrimination in the US. In selling and renting of accommodations, redlining continues to be a corporate practice among the natives, laws against such discrimination have done little in stopping the vice. It goes on though at a small rate because it is somehow hard to prove. When a black person goes to an office to inquire whether there is a vacant room, they are told that there is none, whereas a white person is said to fill the form.
Implementing the social justice is a challenge since it’s not something that can be done by a single person. The government ought to apply it and extend it slowly to individuals for everyone to participate in their capability. Hurdles faced in implementing social justices policies include; equity of opportunities, poverty reduction, misuse of social justice, human rights and society safer. The government acts as a regulator at the same time negotiator to guarantee social justice.
Fundamentally long civil rights movement shaped the south, there was the formation of black and women movement to achieve such liberation. Feminist also participated in making sure the voice of a woman is heard. These contributed to the emergence of a different gay liberation movement which advanced the gay right. Racial segregation is reduced to a lower rate, the person of color experienced discrimination, but they couldn’t prove.
