Civil Rights Movement

The civil rights movement (also known as the African-American civil rights movement, American civil rights movement and other terms) was a decades long movement with the goal of securing legal rights for African Americans that other Americans already held. With roots starting in the Reconstruction era during the late 19th century, the movement resulted in the largest legislative impacts after the direct actions and grassroots protests organized from the mid-1950s until 1968.
