how many black people died during the civil rights movement?
Only a few people died and those were the ones that took hard balls to the face. [ But the ones with the initials TO got the bigger badder ones
Answer: There were many deaths that were a direct result of the Civil Rights Movement...and a tragic murders that raised awareness of the atrocities in the south, resulting in more support for the movement.
The Murder of Emmitt Till shed light on the
horrors of the Jim Crow south. His death sparked the Movement. The four little girls: Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertsion and Cynthia Welsley were not involved in the Movement; neither was Virgil Lamar Ware, a 13 year old boy who was killed the same day by the people involved in the bombing of the 16th st Baptist church. Although they were not involved in the movement, their deaths were a direct result of it. Besides those 6, I can think of at least another 35 other deaths directly related to the Civil Rights Movement, including John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. Some of the victims were directly involved, others just random killings by segregationists who were trying to intimidate the activists
