Civil Rights MovementAnnotated Bibliography Sherri Foote-ElderGCU-HIS 450August 23, 2020
Research Proposal: Civil Rights MovementA topic that is relevant to the period of history this course covers that I wish to research will be on the Civil Rights Movement. The Civil Rights was a period of injustice. The right to justice was made through laws that were made to safeguard minorities. The Civil Rights Movement help to shape America. We are where we are today because of this era. A lot has changed however, there are still challenges that hinder America. We have come a long way, but there is still a good way to go. In my essay I speak on the issue’s minorities face during the time as well as the advocates for the movement. I will also speak on the issues overcame. There are ideas to consider such as connections then and now. My prospective thesis for the essay would be despite the Era of the Civil Rights Movement it had a great impact, there are motives, policies, and laws in place, and it still effects the America today.
