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.
