Why were tactics of the non-violent civil rights movement influential in helping change people's minds about racism and/or stopping discrimination?

A: Tactics of the nonviolent civil rights movement were influential in helping change people's minds about racism and stopping discrimination because they made many people realize that African Americans were not the enemy and meant no harm. All African Americans wanted was to have equal rights and by using nonviolent tactics, whites could see that they were brave but wouldn't do anything to obtain those rights. In addition, the violent treatment towards African Americans that came as a result of their non-violent tactics horrified some people and, in turn, changed their minds about racism and discrimination. It made many people realize that African Americans were human and just like everyone else.
