Reflect: As you read the text, notice the importance of World
War II in fueling the drive for equality among different groups in the years
after the war. Having proved themselves in the service of the nation, both at
home and on the battlefield, many groups entered the postwar years more
dissatisfied than ever with the discrimination they faced. Reflect on the goals
and achievements of the African American Civil Rights Movement. Think about how
the African American Civil Rights Movement was similar to and different from the
other movements for equality during the 1960s and 1970s.

Write: Based on information from your textbook, the required
article, and the video, address the following points:

  • Provide two specific examples of federal laws or Supreme Court rulings that
    were victories for the equality movements of the 1960s and 1970s and explain how
    they have contributed to spreading opportunity to a specific group of Americans.
  • Provide at least one specific example of continuing inequality and discuss
    how history can explain why it still exists.

Your initial post should
be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the
required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any
references. Your references and citations must be formatted according to APA
