American terrorism towards black people:

For the purpose of placing the murder of George Floyd in a larger historical context, Haley Price created four ClioVis timelines. Many of the events had significant scholarly material that William Jones and Alina Scott provided. Although the timelines are not complete, they help viewers understand the historical forces at play throughout history [1, 2].
The timelines created by Haley Price are intended to put the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests in historical perspective. Data from current news articles and websites like and were mostly utilised. Please only read this chronology once. Take your time, learn a bit at a time, and then teach someone you care about what you have learned [3, 4].
I revised the timeline, concentrating on the period up to 1860, for substance, syntax, and punctuation. I thought that I had to mention a few things that happened outside the US’s national borders. I made the choice to incorporate regionally expansive linkages in certain events’ descriptions rather than adding them to the chronology [5-7].
The project’s primary objective is to demonstrate the antiblackness that permeates all levels of government, including those at the federal, state, and municipal levels. The research also demonstrates how Black people are resilient and resistant to institutional oppression [8-10].
The timelines are an amazing teaching and learning tool for the political history of the historical period we are in since they do a great job of emphasizing significant dates in Civil Rights action and legislation. Other people are encouraged to create their own timelines since the struggle for Black Lives transcends political and legal restrictions [11-13].
Because of their natural hair, Black Americans have historically been stigmatized and treated unfairly. Legislators in at least 15 states have discussed banning hair discrimination this legislative session. The CROWN Act, which stands for “Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair,” was adopted by the US House in March [14, 15].
In Louisiana, the CROWN Act was initially presented in the spring of that year. Legal experts believe that additional states will pass similar measures. She emphasizes calls for racial justice, a rise in Black hair awareness, and the U.S. Army’s decision to end its ban on dreadlocks in 2017 [16, 17].
Steven Ultrino, a state representative from Massachusetts, has presented a measure that would have outlawed prejudice against natural hairstyles in educational institutions. In Florida, a similar law has been in limbo for the past three years. The bill’s proponents remind out that Black pupils are still subjected to discrimination because of their hair [18].
According to a research, natural hairstyles are associated with Black women’s perceptions of their professionalism, competence, and likelihood of being recommended for a job interview. 53% of Black girls as young as 5 years old have encountered hair prejudice, according to a Dove survey [19, 20].
Generally The goal of Haley Price’s ClioVis timelines is to contextualize the Black Lives Matter demonstrations. The majority of the information used came from recent news stories and websites like and The project’s main goal is to show how anti-blackness penetrates all branches of government. The US House approved the CROWN Act in March, which stands for “Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair.” At least 15 states’ legislators have spoken about outlawing discrimination based on hair. Even at the age of 5, 53% of Black females have experienced hair bias.
