Based American I value individualism, respect for private property,

Based on the life I live today, I reflect on the positive outcomes civil rights leaders have developed. Activism, an effort of direct involvement on a social or political change, helped many prosper during the civil rights movement. Activists such as Susan B. Anthony, Martin Luther King, and Abraham Lincoln demonstrated that change was necessary through the tactic of nonviolence. Without their contributions, the demand of a more just and inclusive society could have departed from the constitution. When I am on a school campus I am able to see diversity. I come to the realization of how fortunate I am to be able to acquire a higher education without any form of restriction to my peers and I. Education is now accessible. Graduating is viewed more as an expectation, instead of a privilege in the United States of America. Before the accessibility to an education, advocates of NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) argued that every child, regardless of race, deserved a first-class education. Cases like Maury v. Maryland in 1936 and Brown v. Board of Education in 1954 to 1955 established the development of desegregation in schools. Apart from education, the civil rights act of 1964 gave employment benefits. Therefore, segregation in public places and employment discrimination on the basis of color, race, religion, or gender is prohibited.  I comprehend that the purpose was to end division and to promote Based on the life I live today, I reflect on the positive outcomes civil rights leaders have developed.

Without their contributions, the demand of a more just and inclusive society could have departed from the constitution. Discrimination is not completely gone. In modern time, there is still the misunderstanding that either a race, gender, or a religion is superior to others. In the 1950s de jure segregation meant segregation was forced by law. Not only was there de jure segregation but de facto segregation, meaning it was being given through widespread of individual preference. With the authorization  of law, it caused the impact to be of much greater purpose . I believe this comes to show that discrimination can not only cause financial damage but psychological.Prosperously, the civil rights movement has impacted society; allowing for an improved life. Discrimination is still displayed but has decreased throughout time. However, the outcome I envision is the absolute abolishment of any form of discrimination. ‘Separate but equal’ was declared as unconstitutional, for this reason it should not be found right to practice historical actions that make others feel isolated. As an American I value individualism, respect for private property, and belief for equal opportunity.
