Part II

Once you complete the matrix, use the space below to write a 75- to 100-word response describing the role civil disobedience played in the Civil Rights Movement.

The role that the civil disobedience played in the Civil Rights Movement was very significant!!!   The people that participated in civil disobedience did not notice any immediate action in fact the text states that it took over 7 years for any real action to take affect.   But fighting back without violence showed the people opposed to ending segregation that the Black population where real humans, intelligent, law abiding and wanting an equal status was what they deserved.   Civil disobedience was definitely a hard and passive approach to take in the fight for equality but they where definitely being the bigger and better person.
