HIST 213 - The History of the Civil Rights Movement


This course will examine, through readings and films, those events that led up to and included the civil rights movement in the United States, as well as those mass movements it inspired throughout the 1960s and the 1970s. We will explore the hopes and dreams, actions and strategies of the progressive members of this movement, which began decades before sit-ins galvanized student activism. This course will center on the historical context that helped to shape the political and social reality of the times. We will examine how the basic tenets of this movement continue to influence us today.
