Civil Rights and Black Power documents preview

It is often thought that the Civil Rights Movement took place in America during the 1960s. While this is the case, it is important to remember that the events of the mid-twentieth century were precipitated and influenced by movements aiming to achieve racial equality in the United States which had been in motion since the end of the American Civil War. After all, the Civil Rights Act of 1866 granted emancipation to all America’s slaves and equality under law, regardless of race.
