Fighting for Civil Rights
From the Series Flash Points
Jackie Robinson plays his first game for the Dodgers in 1947. Hundreds of people boycott buses in Montgomery, Alabama. Seventeen people are killed in a march for voting equality. Two athletes at the 1968 Olympics hold up their fists in a Black Power salute. These powerful moments in the American Civil Rights Movement brought racial inequality into the public eye and transformed the United States’ social and legal structure. Flash Points: Stand Up! examines these moments in history, as African Americans fought and won battles for equal treatment.
