LS 745 - After King: Civil Rights and the Black Freedom Movement, 1968-1985

(3.00 cr.)

An investigation of the changing parameters of the struggle for African American civil rights in the United States from 1968 to 1985. This study begins with the pivotal year of 1968, a year which saw the splintering of the Civil Rights Movement in the aftermath of the deaths of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert Kennedy and the siphoning off of many of its most important activists into other movements. The study continues into the critical years of the 1970s with the variety of efforts at integration and equality related to housing, education, and employment. The study concludes with the middle years of the Reagan administration and the shifting sands of public and governmental opinion regarding Affirmative Action.
