Different means of protest?
SPEECH / Famous black people spoke up > to give / deliver a speech. ‘I have a dream’ sounds like a poem / very catchy / rhetorical
BOYCOTT / BREAK THE LAW
EX. Freedom riders > boycott segregated bus > create their own integrated bus system > very risky / radical and illegal BUT justified because the law was racist.
Sometimes heroes must break the law. (Rosa Parks / Robin Hood)
SIT-INS / stop working in a factory / sit down and don’t move in places where Black people were not allowed ( restaurants / coffee shop / libraries …) ‘ die-ins ‘ Black Lives Matter
TAKE PICTURES / to document facts / have proof / denounce violence / inequalities / striking image to shock public opinion.
Students react: what’s the best strategy?
I think the best strategy is to break the law.
I agree because segregation laws were racist.
For example when Freedom Riders boycotted the segregated
bus system they could have been arrested.
Also sit-ins are peaceful but they break the law so it’s dangerous for Black people too.
Martin Luther King gave his famous speech ‘I have a Dream’ in 1968. I believe speeches are more powerful than sit ins / the most powerful strategy as / because we can remember it and study it at school today.
But taking pictures is also necessary to remember these actions.
Today with the Internet it’s easier to promote a cause, everything goes viral compared to media in the past.
