    The main tactic used during the civil rights movement was protests and nonviolent marches.


    In 1950-1960, the Civil Rights Movement began to use a new form of protest. Participants sat on the floor where they knew they would not be served, like a segregationist cafeteria, and refused to leave. Although they were often repressed or imprisoned, they remained in a peaceful attitude, which created sympathy for their cause. A group called the Nonviolent Committee for Student Coordination organized many such protests.

    In 1961, a group called the Racial Equality Congress began to sponsor "Freedom Trips" through the southern states. Blacks and whites traveled together to make sure buses and stations did not segregate people by skin color. Some activists were beaten or arrested. In Alabama, a bus was blown up with a bomb.

    In August 1963, about 250,000 people gathered in Washington, the capital of the United States, to pressure Congress to pass a civil rights law. Martin Luther King, Jr. made a powerful speech there, famous for the phrase "I have a dream." The event became known as the March on Washington.
