|Contents:||Ten years after Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, and nearly eleven years after the decree that "separate but equal" was unconstitutional, black Americans were still fighting for equality. But millions had now joined the movement and in Selma, Alabama, thousands of blacks and whites came together in the climactic fifty-mile march from Selma to Montgomery demanding the right to vote. Even as the movement began to break into factions, the Voting Rights Act became federal law.|
