Summary
The U.S. civil rights movement rose to prominence in the 1950s, with protests finally compelling civil rights legislation in the mid-1960s. But activists still contended with institutional racism embedded in America s economic, political, and cultural systems. This important, wide-ranging volume tells the story of the early movement and the figures who fought for equality, such as Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, and Malcolm X. It also includes discussion of the ramifications of the movement and the actions of its leaders today. Historical photographs, primary sources, and powerful quotes from eyewitnesses of events will resonate with readers
