History of the African American Civil Rights Movement

The information in this PowerPoint is from the booklet “Our Common History: Fighting for the Rights of People.” This resource was created by SARTAC as a plain language history of minority groups advocating for their human and civil rights.  This session is about the African American Civil Rights Movement. The civil rights movement was an empowering and also dangerous time for Black Americans. The efforts of civil rights activists got laws to end segregation. Today, Black Americans and their allies are still fighting for equal access to voting, jobs, and housing.
