    The Black Power Movement took place after the Civil Rights Movement but it was never a formal movement. The Black Power Movement encourages African Americans to realize their potential in the American world and help them realize their independence. One of the influential figures of this movement was Malcolm X. Malcolm X was a minister in the Nation of Islam and civil rights activist. Later in life he separated from the Nation of Islam and created his own organization Muslim Mosque, Inc. Malcolm X continued to support African American rights throughout his life. His life works led many African Americans to realize their importance and independence.

    Benchmark 7-- Assess the Building of Coalitions Between African Americans, Whites, and Other Groups in Achieving Integration and Equal Rights.
    February 7, 2011
    ...
    The March on Washington is probably the greatest representation of a coalition between African Americans and whites in the 1960’s. This march was organized to promote peacefully the Civil Rights Movement. There were many prominent Civil Rights activists in charge of the March on Washington, namely, A. Phillip Randolph, Whitney Young, James Farmer, John Lewis, Bayard Rustin and Martin Luther King Jr. 250,000 people met in front of the Lincoln Memorial for speeches and songs. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “I Have A Dream” speech during the March on Washington. The march happened on August 28, 1963 and was televised throughout the United States. After the march the organisers met with President Kennedy. In whole, the March on Washington was very beneficial to the Civil Rights Movement.

In 1941, women's participation in the workforce increased by 60% __(http://www.nytimes.com/library/magazine/millennium/m2/wolf-timeline.html).__ Many women found work in factories, producing goods and weapons for the war. When the war ended, women were forced out of the workforce and back into the home.

    BENCHMARK FOUR: The Space Race was a very important part of American History in which the presidents of this era had to make important decisions. The Space Race occurred during the Cold War era. The Space Race was basically a competition between the United States and the Soviet Union to see which country could become the most technologically advanced. Up until that point in American History, Americans believed themselves to be the “pacesetters” of the world. In October of 1957, the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, which became the worlds first artificial satellite. Congress passed education aid measures after the launch of Sputnik that put special emphasis on sciences. President John F. Kennedy promised congress and the United States that the United Stated would land land a man on the moon before the 1960’s ended. On July 20, 1969 (After John F. Kennedy’s Assassination and while Lydon B Johnson was president), Apollo 11 landed on the moon and the astronauts walked on it.

    BENCHMARK SIX: There were many important figures who influenced the Civil Rights movement. People like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Thurgood Marshall, and the Little Rock Nine are some of the more prominent figures. Rosa Parks was the woman who, through her heroic actions, led many African Americans to stand up for themselves and fight for their rights. Rosa Parks boarded a crowded bus in Montgomery, Alabama on her way home from work one day. As the bus crowded, the bus driver asked Rosa Parks and three other African-American gentlemen to move to the “colored” section of the bus. Rosa refused and was taken to jail and was bailed out later that evening. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. heard about Rosa refusing to leave her seat and he started a bus boycott in Montgomery Alabama that lasted for a year. Rosa and her husband were involved in the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). The NAACP worked to gain rights for African Americans. Rosa Parks won many awards for her courage. Some of these awards include The Rosa Parks Peace Prize (1994), The Presidential Medal of Freedom (1996) and the Congressional Gold Medal (1999).

    Martin Luther King Jr. encouraged other African-Americans to fight for their rights in a non-violent manner. Martin Luther King Jr. founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1957 which encouraged African Americans to use non-violent approached to achieve their civil rights. SCLC is still around today. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his “I Have a Dream” speech in 1963 at the Lincoln Memorial to civil rights marchers. Many Americans are still inspired by his “I Have a Dream” speech to this day. He also won a Nobel Peace Prize. Dr. Martin Luther was assassinated on April 4, 1968.

    BENCHMARK 8: One of the most important cases that the Supreme Court made a decision on regarding integration was Brown vs. Board of Education which ruled, unanimously, that segregation of children in public schools was unconstitutional. This ruling did not completely desegregate children in public schools because school boards in various states were still prejudice, but this ruling did put the Constitution on the side of the Civil Rights Movement. The Brown vs Board case did not pertain to desegregation in anywhere but public schools. Later, in Cooper vs Aaron (1958) the Supreme Court ruled that states had to follow the integration laws.

    Regents of the University of California vs. Bakke (1978) was an important case regarding to affirmative action. This case ruled that racial “quotas” for admittance into schools are unconstitutional but “affirmative action” programs, in most cases, are constitutional. The University of California reserved 16 seats out of 100 seats in the medical program for minority students. Allan Bakke, a non-minority student applying to the University of California’s medical school was not admitted to the school even though he had higher test scores than many minority students. The Supreme Court ruled that a student could not be discriminated against admittance to the schools medical program because of their race over someone who had less qualifications. The Supreme Court then ruled that schools could use race as a factor in determining admittance of students to a school when used alongside other factors.

    Relating to to the rights of the accused, the cases Miranda vs Arizona (1966) and Gideon vs. Wainwright (1963) were important case for the Supreme Court to decide on. In Miranda vs Arizona, the Supreme Court ruled that criminals in custody must be informed of their constitutional rights and their rights to an attorney before they are questioned by the police. Ernesto Miranda who was charged with robbery, kidnapping, and rape was not given these rights because the police failed to inform him. Miranda confessed his crimes before being informed of his rights, and court intended to use that against him in his conviction. Miranda took his case to the Supreme Court and the Justices ruled that his prison sentence was unconstitutional because he had not been read his rights. The Supreme Court also ruled that any person arrested must be read their “Miranda Rights”. Ernesto Miranda was later tried again under the new laws and convicted. In the Gideon vs Wainwright case, Clarence Earl Gideon was charged with robbery in Panama City, Florida and was unable financially to provide a lawyer for himself, and was relying on his right to a defence lawyer provided by the court. Gideon was told that Florida only provided defense lawyers for those charged with greater crimes that resulted in greater convictions (ex. death penalty). Gideon was sentenced to prison and appealed his case after his release. Eventually, his case made it to the Supreme Court and the Justices ruled his jail sentence unconstitutional because he had not been given a defence lawyer. The Supreme Court ruled that all criminals charged with serious crimes who were unable to afford their own defence attorney must be provided one from the state under the Constitution. Below are pictures of Miranda and Gideon:
