The History of the Modern Civil Rights Movement | Summer / Short course | Humanities & Culture | Online/Distance | 6 weeks | UC Berkeley Summer Sessions | USA

The objective of this course is to examine the modern Civil Rights Movement. As traditionally understood, this period began with the May 17, 1954, "Brown vs. Board of Education" Supreme Court decision and ended with the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. This course will expand this time frame and seek to place this movement in the context of global developments and the broad sweep of United States History. Assigned readings consist of historical and autobiofraphical texts. Lectures will contextualize the readings by placing the material and its significance within the overall History and culture of Americans. Visual Media will augment the lectures.
