Abstract: This course will examine the development of the American Civil Rights Movement from roughly the World War II period through the Black Power era of the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. In the semester, we will examine the social, political and economic climate of the era and consider how both Blacks and Whites were affected. Specifically, the course will focus on various organizations and the strategies they implemented which resulted in events such as Brown v. Board of Education, and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Additionally, the course will analyze the subtle and not-so-subtle reactions to initiatives that allowed African Americans to attain many of the rights and privileges that have become commonplace in today’s society.
