Travel to Civil Rights Hot Spots

printable version

Please tell us what you think about "Civil Rights Hot Spots".

In the 1950s, African Americans resumed the active struggle for equality they had been forced to abandon during post-Civil War Reconstruction. The civil rights movement found its voice in places that routinely discriminated against blacks: schools, lunch counters, public buses and terminals.

Travel to civil rights hot spots on this map, and track the movement through its most tumultuous years.
