Freedom Fight

     "Do you feel that it's wrong to discriminate against a person solely on the basis of race and color?" A question directed to Mayor West by Diane Nash. What struck me the most was the height at which discrimination was back then, especially in the south that it led to so many deaths and severe injuries of colored individuals in the struggle to be looked upon and treated as equal American citizens.

     Of all the tactics used by the students, I think the freedom riders tactic was more successful because it had a positive impact on the civil rights movement as they continuously displayed courage in their endeavor despite the numerous obstacles they encountered from the government, law enforcement, judicial system and the general public
