Focusing upon the African-American Civil Rights Movement, discuss the challenges and hurdles in the path of progress

Since World War II, racial equality has become a benchmark for living the American Dream.
Focusing upon the African-American Civil Rights Movement, discuss the challenges and hurdles
in the path of progress.
Address important laws and court decisions that affected the quality of life for blacks, especially in the South.
Include at least 3 major civil rights leaders and organizations, as well as 3 notable opponents of racial equality. What common methods did segregationists and vigilantes use to block racial equality? Were blacks
always united in their goals to end discrimination? How did the Civil Rights Movement change
the platforms of the modern Democratic and Republican Parties? Were there other political
factors in influencing the 1960s reforms eventually passed in Congress?
How did the African-American struggle influence other minority rights groups? With the recent election of an

African-America President, do you think the war against racial discrimination is over? Why or
why not?
