How did a relatively powerless minority bring down the entire system of racial segregation in the United States within a single generation? This brand new edition of The Civil Rights Movement chronicles the growth of the mass movement from its origins after the Second World War to the destruction of segregated society, before charting the movement’s path through the 20th century. It challenges the view that the Movement died in 1968 and that coalitions with other groups damaged the gains of the African American community. Fully revised throughout, it now includes in-depth analysis of Barack Obama’s presidency, further exploration of cultural and gender history, and an examination of contemporary issues, such as the Black Lives Matter movement and the 2016 election.
