The Watson go to Birmingham is related to the actual history by many ways such as the facts about the civil rights movement. This book gives us a perspective of the people who was treated unfairly by other people. If you read the book and understand the course of history you can connect them by their date and their environment that the Watson's are living. The story is very unique by publishing a book with an unfair perspective of the history.
In History the cause of this unfair rights was the people believing that different skinned people are lower than them. There are some people that they are different than us so we should treat them unfairly. I think that is wrong because we are same. The effect of this civil rights movement changed the course of America and other countries. For an example after the civil rights movement was over there was more fairness. For an example after this event a different skinned person was elected by president(Barack Obama). The people at the Mid-1900s would even imagine that a president was elected by a different skinned person.
At 1963, the civil movement act was in action. This time setting was in the book "The Watsons go to Birmingham". The civil right movement started before 100 years ago. The civil rights movement happen because of their skin color. The people divided the people by their skin color(Black, white). The people with Black skin color had a disadvantage by having bad environment. The people with white skin color had a better environment than the black skinned people. But, the official protest was started at 1955 December 1. It was going on, and they made an organization called SCLC (Southern-Christian- Leadership-Conference). Their first major accomplish was to make a major campaign at Birmingham, Alabama 1963.
