Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) was founded in 1942 by a group of 50 activists, 1/3rd were black while the rest were white, to protest racial segregation in the United States. Their primary tactics were to employ non-violent civil disobedience as a means of protesting segregation. CORE was instrumental in organizing the freedom rides in the American South to protest segregated public transportation and assisted in many demonstrations throughout the 1960’s.
