The signing of the Civil Rights Act in 1964 was a monumental turning point in the Civil Rights Movement! It signified the end of segregation and prejudice against African Americans. Fifty years later, the killings of Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, Michael Brown and many others at the hands of law enforcement officers have rocked the Nation causing many to question whether the progression has slowed, stopped altogether, or possibly reversing? Although the events happened in specific regions of the Country, many cities activated and held public demonstrations that grew in numbers daily. It brought all ethnicities together in solidarity to carry the message that injustice will not be tolerated! That message went well beyond our borders as other Countries held their own public displays and demonstrations in support! This is compilation of all the public demonstrations and events captured in Austin, Texas; including the Civil Rights Summit and MLK March. The recent events will forever be etched in our history that will not only be talked about for years, but for centuries!
