The struggle for equal rights

I read the article "The Struggle for Equal Rights." It's about African Americans struggling for civil rights. Throughout the 1950s to the 1970s African Americans didn't have the same rights as white people did. African Americans couldn't sit in certain trains, buses, or movie theaters. African Americans tried lots of things to stop this madness. The famous Rosa Parks was the first one to not give up her seat to a white person. In 1971, two lawyers started the South Poverty Law Center. They helped African Americans for 32 years and still going. They helped make their way to equal rights.
