I believe that Martin Luther King had very significant effect on the civil rights movement between these years. He inspired thousands, if not millions of blacks and even whites nationally and internationally and he phenomenally progressed the fight for black equality. Although he did have a very controversial private life and was disrespected and hated by a vast quantity of white racists, it did not change the dramatic effect he had in the civil rights movement. It began with the Montgomery Bus Boycott which King was essentially the voice of. This was his first bout at leading a protest and the outcome was a huge success, inspiring 20 other similar boycotts in Southern cities.
It has to be in the person to make the step, to have the belief and the faith that they should be a free people” (p.103). The reason this quote is so important is because it sums up much of Rosa’s struggle during the civil rights movement. The decade before the boycott Rosa was trying to find the faith and courage to stand up for the rights she knew she deserved. When the civil rights movement started to progress, she had already made the step, but still was discouraged by the unwillingness of others to do the same. Jeanne Theoharis did a thorough job highlighting Rosa’s lifelong dedication to fighting American inequality.
The fear of loosing his son led Romulus to attempt to better himself, seen through the statement “My father didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.” Although this method of parenting gave short-term dismay demonstrated through Raimond’s childhood outburst “you don’t love me”. It resulted in long-term fulfillment and a healthy relationship worthy of being recognized retrospectively within Gaitas

Walter's anger is perfectly justified although it gets him nowhere, and Ruth's increasing frustration with her husband is also justified, especially as they are about to bring another child into the world. The reader hopes that Walter's scheme will work even though he/she knows it never will. In the end, the family triumphs against daunting odds. They will have to work harder than they ever have to keep their house, and they will never fit into their neighborhood.

Specky’s dad is nice and encourages him to try his hardest and that it is not just about winning. “Well what are you waiting for?”(Arena, Lyon, page 36) Specky’s dad does not mind if his son does not win the game or if he is not good at things, he does not push his son to do thing he encourages him to do them.

The better relationship is the relationship that Specky and his dad
“If I didn't I couldn't hold up my head in town, I couldn't represent this county in the legislature, I couldn't even tell you or Jem not to do something again”. Another example of Atticus’s’ courage is his ability to raise his children even when he is full engaged in Tom Robinson’s case. He still has the time to raise his children and teach them the right morals like “You never really understand a person a person until you consider things from his point of view”. He teaches his children to respect themselves and others, try to do what’s right, and what true courage is. Atticus defines true courage as when you fight for what is right regardless of whether you win or lose and demonstrates it multiple times in the novel.

Because of his fear of the Nazis and his fear of losing his dad he was able to survive. Without those emotions he would have no chance. Those are a few reasons why I think the quote "All Literature shows us the power of emotion, It is emotion, not reason, that motivates characters in literature." Is true. Even though the good thing maybe there the characters keep going in opposite directions or other directions because they feel that 1 to be the right or don't care what happens to them as long as they go that
