I Don't Have One Essay

880 words - 4 pages

The civil rights movement was a nonviolent campaign against racism that sought equality through integration and took place in the 1960s, while black nationalism was a more aggressive movement that sought equality through separation and took place alongside the civil rights movement.

Therefore, the second ‘won’ the engagement in a way, since they would be able to continue whatever it is that they were doing. One of Martin Luther King Jr’s six principles of nonviolence states “Nonviolence seeks to win friendship and understanding.” This is basically saying what I said earlier: the civil rights movement has a goal of understanding.
