African Americans rallied for their rights
African Americans put up a fight

Discrimination was all around
No nice words between races were found

They wanted to be treated equally
But change wasn't made peacefully

The Civil Rights Movement ended discrimination
As well as ending segregation

Their social, legal, and political rights were given back to them
African Americans were no longer condemned
