Provide a 5 pages analysis while answering the following question: The Seattle School Boycott and Death of John Williams. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NNACP), Congress for Racial Equality (CORE) and Central Area Civil Rights Committee (CACRC). These groups had tried to persuade the school management to address the pressing issue, but it was all in vain. CORE, a civil rights group, submitted an analysis of school segregation that had a formulated plan to eliminate segregation in the public school system. The study from CORE would have eliminated all forms of segregation by matching white schools with black’s schools (Clark, 2005).
Church leaders also had a hand in the planning of the boycott. Some of the elementary schools were based on church premises. For instance, A.M.E. Church, Madrona Presbyterian Church, YMCA, Goodwill Baptist Church, St. Peter Claver Center, and Cherry Hill Baptist Church were used to plan for elementary schools. This use of church premises showed that the church leaders were actively involved in the planning and organization of Seattle’s school boycott. These unsuccessful trials by the civil activist group had either directly or indirectly organized the Seattle’s school boycott.
The reason as to why they organized the boycott was to pressure the schools’ board to eliminate segregation in the public school system. They had fruitlessly tried all other possible avenues to convince the school management in vain. After years of futile discussion, the boycott was the next best option. (Clark, 2005)
