The Civil Rights movement was incredibly violent. The civil unrest that caused America's cities to burn during the sixties and early seventies was part of the civil right movement and lead to urban sprawl as whites poured out of the cities. Medger Evers, MLK, the three civil rights workers in Mississippi, the 101st Airborne had to escort students into newly segregated schools in Little Rock, The Black Panthers and right here in Wilmington, there were deaths during a riot in the early 70s that helped spark the exodus of businesses and law abiding residents out of downtown.
