minorities= women suffrage, civil rights, native americans? latinos?
most of them used demonstrations or protest rallies. Women's suffrage had rallies or marches. Civil rights movemnt--boycott of buses, marches or rallies.
please add if you can
By far the most effective strategy used by the Civil Rights movement was nonviolent resistance as led by Martin Luther King, Jr. The protesters did not fight back, even when confronted by dogs, fire hoses, and arrests. TV broadcast thousands of images of innocent, passive protesters being confronted by violence. Yet, they kept their cool, and simply sat down. These images swept the country and aroused many people, especially in the North, who were shocked by this treatment of Civil Rights advocates. We could overlook sit-ins, boycotts, marches, and petitions, but we could not ignore this unwarranted violence.
Sit-ins were a useful tactic in which African-Americans sat at lunch counters that expressly forbade them on the basis of their race.
What strategies did Native Americans and Latinos use?
