Example: If I were discussing Rosa Parks, I would make sure to include the Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1955.
Example: Rosa Parks worked with several important organizations, including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). I would note that she was fighting Jim Crow laws (laws that enforced racial segregation in the South) and that her work helped to lead to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
