Background-Civil Rights Movement
-The Civil Rights Movement has been happening since 1954 and is still happening today. It started with the Brown Vs. Board of Education in 1954, and continued on with others such as:
-Martin Luther King Jr. leading the anti-segregation of blacks and whites movement.
-Rosa Parks refusing to move to the African American side of the bus.
-integration and the little rock nine
- Civil Rights Act of 1964 with President Johnson prohibiting segregation.
-Civil Rights Act of 1968, added prohibiting discrimination in sale, rental, and financing of houses.
Civil Rights Movements will always be with us, from 1954 until now. They are growing larger and larger all around the world. There are also more and more coming up in everyday life.
The one that most of us know is Martin Luther King Jr.'s movement. He went to India once and learned from Ghandi's followers that resistance without violence is the best weapon out there. He used this when he came back when he was the leader of a Black Bus boycott, where he and many others got arrested for disrupting the way business flows. He then led a march for anti-segregation, where he gave his famous "I have a Dream" speech. This impacted many people in different ways. He started the movement to freedom of blacks and whites together, but this made some people mad. He was shot in February of 1968 and killed. He made an incredable impact on many to keep his dream going, and now we can all live together and he has his own national holiday to celebrate him.


Synopsis of the Israeli/Munich movement:
For as long as most can remember the Jewish people has faced and long delt with antisemitism. Or possibly what we would know better as racism toward them. This antisemitism went all the way back 2000 years ago. This was when the Romans first began to treat the Jewish people with the racist attitude in the geography now called Israel. . In some countries Jews were welcomed, and they enjoyed long periods of peace with their neighbors. The antisemitism towards jewish people was increasingly bad in Europe. This was becasue most places was mostly populated with the Christian religion. This was mostly becasue the Jewish people do not share the same beleif as the Christian people, who beleive that Jesus is the Son of God, and the Jews do not. Also, there was the controversy that the Christian people beleived that the Jews were responsible for exicution of Jesus when it was proven by historians to be the fault of the Romans. Later on coming more recent the Jewish people were given the blame for a lot of issues that had nothing to do with them. A major example deals with Adolf Hitler which is a very well known racism point in the history of Europe. More recently a major problem is in Israel where there is a major outcry of antisemitism. "Some 500 anti-Semitic attacks are reported in Israel every year," according to independent estimates. Many problems that come from the non-jewish people to the jewish people both came from the USSR. When comnig to Israel the jewish people left to escape the antisemitism when really the people treating them so badly came with them. Although this problem even today is so large in Israel it doesn't appear that there is much being done to stop the issue. But, is there a lot being done and the issue is just so large that it appears like nothing?


In the summer of 1972 the Olympics were to be held in Germany, this was the first time they had returned since 1936.
In 1936 was when the racism against the Jewish people was taking place; the Olympics were taking a back seat.
So they thought that the return of the Olympics in 1972 would heal the racial wounds. On the morning of September 7, 1972
eight Arab people came into the Olympic grounds and killed two Israeli team members and held nine hostage. The following day the
remaining 9 were shot and killed. This shocked everybody so they held off on the Olympics for 24 hours and held a memorial
then they went on with the games.
