Marching for Change: Movements Across America (SBP Learning)
Marching for Change focuses on three movements that have happened across America. Sometimes when we believe in something strongly, we must take a stand to stand up for what we believe in. As the past has taught us with Dr. Martin Luther King, a peaceful march can show the world what we believe in and get our point across without violence. The 1963 March on Washington did just that and showed the world just how many people wanted equal rights for all Americans regardless of their skin color or other attributes. Sadly, today there is still racism and Black people are not always treated equally, just like the terrible treatment that led to the death of George Floyd. George Floyd’s death led to the most recent March in 2020 to show that black lives matter, and no one should be killed as he was. Hopefully, society can learn and grow to treat one another with kindness no matter the differences. This book also covers the Women’s March. It is sad today that in our society not only people of different colors but also females are treated differently than males. This book was very informative and hopefully will help people to think differently about each individual’s human right to be treated equally!
