The civil rights movement was a long and difficult struggle for equality for African Americans in the United States. The movement made significant progress in the 1960s with the passage of the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act, but was met with increased violence and brutality. Despite this, the movement continued and has made progress in recent years.

  • 00:00:00 The modern civil rights movement began in the mid-20th century with the fight for equality for African Americans. The movement gained greater visibility with the Brown versus Board of Education case, which led to the passage of the Rights Act of 1964. However, the movement was met with increased brutality and violence, and it was not until the Voting Rights Act of 1965 was passed that significant progress was made for African Americans. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the most iconic leaders of the movement, and his death three years after the Voting Rights Act was passed marked a significant loss. However, the movement continued and has made significant progress in recent years.
