Civil Rights Movement

Aus ZUM-Unterrichten
In this learning path you can learn much about the Civil Rights Movement in the USA.

After slavery was abolished, life didn't change to much for the black population. After the second world war people fought against Segregation and for their rights. Most famous was Martin Luther King. With the Civil Rights Act (1964) and the Voting Rights Act (1965) segregation was officially ended. Today, however, American society is still divided and African Americans still have to fight for their rights.
