Changing Laws: Politics of the Civil Rights Era

ByJudy Dodge Cummings

In Changing Laws: Politics of the Civil Rights Era, middle graders explore the key legislative and judicial victories of the era that spanned from 1954 to the early 1970s, including Brown v. the Board of Education, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Fair Housing Act of 1968, all of which couldn’t have happened without the increased activism of the times. Explore how marches, demonstrations, boycotts, and lawsuits prodded local and state governments to face the bigotry of the legal system, and compare these events with today’s Black Lives Matter movement, which calls for many of the same kinds of reforms.
