March on Milwaukee: Assisted Search - Protests

Protests encompass a variety of tactics that activists use to demonstrate their dissatisfaction with certain conditions and practices. During the Civil Rights Movement, in an effort to bring attention to racial injustices, many activists staged protests in different forms, including marches, boycotts, sit-ins, and picketing. In Milwaukee, civil rights organizations such as the Milwaukee chapter of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), Lloyd Barbee's Milwaukee United School Integration Committee (MUSIC), and the Milwaukee NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) Youth Council employed all of these forms of protest to heighten public awareness.
