Abstract 

The authors describe the disconnected nature of the Civil Rights Movement as it spread throughout the South. In each center of controversy over civil rights, different obstacles and challenges emerged depending on the local political climate. Demonstrations began differently in different contexts--some start as a result of an event and others erupt with no warning. Protestors also faced a variety of injustices, including unfair trials, unwarranted jail time for protest leaders, and the manipulation of local ordinances by officials to dispel and punish activists.
