Civil Rights

An anti war movement would emerge and engulf the 1960s in a period of protest and change. While the Civil Rights movement began soon after the Civil War with the passage of the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments it would gain momentum in the 1950s with the key decision in Brown v Board of Education overturning segregation. The civil rights movement would see gains for African Americans, Latinos, American Indians, and women.
