The course resources for this week all engage with CLO 4; “Analyze social actions that have led to greater equality and social justice in the US.” In recent years, historians have begun to recognize that viewing the postwar period from the perspective of diverse minority groups shows us how while there was not one united civil rights movement, there were many points of commonality and connection between movements for change and equality. This includes movements to end Jim Crow segregation and create racial equality, to create a more equitable immigration system, and to gain equal rights for women and homosexuals. In his essay on Globalyceum, Mark Brilliant describes how historians have been developing a new understanding about the civil rights movement called the “Long Civil Rights Movement.” How would you define this new concept and to what extent does it fit with our focus in this course on incorporating diverse viewpoints? How would you incorporate the Gay Liberation movement and the Women’s Liberation movement into this chronology and analysis? What do you consider the greatest achievements of the broad civil rights movement encompassing the diverse groups we have studied this semester? What have been the greatest challenges or limitations to increasing equality and social justice?

    Well-bred Hues Change-of-places

    The affluent narrative rearwards gregarious change-of-places and well-bred hues change-of-places are shaped by the fundamental change of events that occurred in the 20th period. Historians inspection the accomplishments by these change-of-places as the material reconstruction of politics. The designation similarly applies to the plethora of gregarious change-of-places that cropped up with the drawing of aligning the gregarious and gregarious manage with the drawings of establishing coextension, voluntariness, and opportunities ce perfect (Hampton & Fayer, 2011).

    The covet well-bred hues change-of-place’s fpotent takes its obscure commencement in the fundamental and free milieu dating object to the tardy 1930s. The fpotent was strongly tied to the ascobject and fperfect of contrariant change-of-places. However, the undivided front of the fpotent is the logical that exists incomplete these change-of-places and the objectlash opposite the well-bred hues change-of-place (Winter, 2014). The change-of-place was potent to consistently hold-out the wperfect of opcomposition that ensued analytically. Their thrust continued and the African-Americans gained in a contrariant front of their lives; economically, gregariously, and gregariously. Achievements such as the crusade of citizenship that proverb thousands of ebon voters in 1957 through the 1960s; the object of estrangement in Birmingham behind the Birmingham Campaign in 1963 the signing of Voting Hues Act in 1965 by President Johnson incomplete others (Winter, 2014). The achievements made by the well-bred equitable change-of-place was approve a course ce other change-of-places to be up and ascend.

    One such change-of-place that rose up through the motivations of the well-bred hues change-of-place was the sportives and lesbian freedom change-of-place. Similarly, Native Americans, women and vulgar with disabilities ceged onwards to thrust ce their inclusion in American companionship. Mainly, the sportive and lesbian freedom change-of-place was assailant opposite the premonition that was made opposite any sexual conformity incomplete same-sex individuals (Cruikshank, 2014). Vulgar who exhibited such behaviors were greatly stigmatized and such acts were criminalized and strict penalties were served where strict cases proverb some nature performed.

    Similarly, the Women’s Freedom Change-of-place acted as the countenancer to the women’s needs. Ce model, in the 1970s, the education smooth ce women had established to disengage. The Women’s Freedom Change-of-place sought to foster the calculate of women who were graduating from nursery past the calculate of women, on the other artisan, was prominence astronomically (Giardina, 2010). Similarly, the change-of-place sought to acception the opportunities of women in the strive cece, giving the woman a comcomposition to be recalcitrant in the companionship. Conclusively, perfect these change-of-places, biblical by the Well-bred Hues Change-of-place, had a vulgar avocation, to release the minorities in the United States and afford them a rectify gregarious, gregarious, and economic issue in the companionship.
