Week 5 Short Responses – Question 1 In the space below, specify which historical lens you'd like to use for this exercise. In this exercise I will focus on the Civil Rights Movement from a social historical lens. I chose this lens in part because I believe there is more to analyze with this lens than all others, and also learning more about the social structures within the movement. Week 5 Short Responses – Question 2 Next, formulate a research question about the civil rights movement (historical time from 1954 – 1968), using the lens you've chosen.

Retrieved from ? direct=true&db=prf&AN=9881076&site=eds-live&scope=site. Which is the text of a speech given by Scholarship, Education and Defense Fund for Racial Equality chairman Nils R.

The Civil Rights Movement Needs the Help of Social Scientists. Journal of Social Issues, 24(1), 2–12. Retrieved from - ebscohost-com.ezproxy.snhu.edu/login.aspx?direct=true&db=sih&AN=16487773&site=eds- live&scope=site Which is an article written by Martin Luther King, JR. where he explains why the movement
