This assignment focused on finding Henry David Thoreau’s true meaning of civil disobedience, and giving examples of how it was applied in the Civil Rights Movement and the Abolitionist Movement. I was in charge of Describing Thoreau’s meaning of civil disobedience. (Part A)

One real life example of civil disobedience that I have encountered was when my friend was upset with his parents so instead of doing what they said he just kept doing what he was doing. This conveyed that he did not approve of what they were doing and would not cooperate with them under “unfair” conditions.
