Summary:
African Americans have resisted oppression from the moment they were first enslaved and transported to the New World of America in the 1600s. During the 1950s and 1960s, this resistance led to a widespread movement for civil rights in the United States. Readers will find out how the movement began, what obstacles activists faced, what impact the movement had on the country, and much more.
