The Civil Rights Era (Series: The African American Experience: from Slavery to the Presidency)

by Executive Editor and Intro Writer: Hope Lourie Killcoyne


One of the most important chapters in American history, the civil rights era represents the path of recognition, acceptance, and lauding of one of America’s greatest assets: its black American citizenry. This resource guides readers through the key events and successes, trials and tragedies of the civil rights movement, from the Montgomery bus boycott to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Though significant racial challenges remained even after the dismantling of legal segregation, that only makes studying the civil rights era all the more relevant for students in the twenty-first century.
