Disobeying in order to Exist: African Americans

In the United States, the magnitude of contemporary race riots, the permanence of de facto segregation, and the inability of the authorities to eradicate deeply rooted violence cannot be understood without taking into account their root causes. The age of slavery, characterized by the superiority of whites over blacks, gave way to the age of separation. Under the leadership of Martin Luther King Jr., blacks embraced peaceful resistance. Civil disobedience was essential but not sufficient. The enchanting period of desegregation was rapidly followed by the disillusionment of de facto segregation. Blacks then understood that they would gain their status as free human beings only by forcing their integration.
