Abstract. The roots of nonviolent direct action and the development into a powerful method of persuasion and coercion will be explored in an attempt to explain its distinctive role in the Civil Rights Movement. The paper will focus on the participation of the three actions, the political, the legal and the passive, in the victorious moments of the Movement.

Key words: African American history, Civil Rights Movement, Nonviolent/Passive Resistance, Martin Luther King, Pacifism.
