Summary
During the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s, African Americans were denied the same rights as whites in many parts of the country. Women couldn't pursue the same jobs as men. The LGBTQ community was forced to live in secrecy. Farm workers were forbidden to join unions to advocate for fair wages and working conditions. Diggs shows that protests were a tool the people used to express their discontent and start to make essential change in the fabric of both society and politics. Today, we're seeing that in many cases the job is still unfinished. In addition to examining the marches, protests, and boycotts, Diggs provides hands-on projects and research activities to further explain a complicated era
