Before the Civil Rights Act was passed, African Americans faced widespread discrimination. This book captures the societal turmoil in America during the civil rights movement as African Americans began demanding their constitutional protections. With the use of primary source images, engaging sidebars, and well-written text, we see first hand the features of the movement, how presidents Kennedy and Johnson sought ways to guarantee their rights to African Americans, and just how life has changed in America since the passage of this important legislation.
