I can't think of ideas for this essay topic:
What role does white resistance to integration play in the success of the civil rights movement by 1965?

  • U.S. History -

    Violent white resistance -- such as

    -- the governor standing at a school door preventing a black student from entering

    -- police with fire hoses and dogs breaking up a peaceful demonstration

    -- murder of Emmett Till and others --

    were all played on TV news around the country. This resistance brought home to Civil Rights sympathizers the ugly horrors of segregation.
