Study Group Questions on Post Civil Rights Period

1. What were the goals of the civil rights activists in the period of desegregation? What did the civil rights activists achieve, and what did they not achieve?

2. What tactics did the civil rights activists use to create social change? Are those tactics relevant and appropriate in the US right now? If so, should they be used in the civil rights context, or are they more appropriate in other contexts, like environmental struggles?

3. What problems did integration not solve? What does income inequality have to do with race?

4. What has changed? What has improved. In my view, things are better, although we have far to go? Ask the people in your life (Black, White, Hispanic Asian, Native American) what things they went through when they were growing up in terms of segregation? Give details.
