Civil Rights Seminar

About this Course

This seminar examines the civil rights movement that  began in the years before Brown v. Board of Education and continued throughout the 1950's and 1960's. This examination is based on the PBS video series "Eyes on the Prize" and additional readings. The videos and the readings provide social, cultural, and historical  perspectives on the civil rights movement and the legal developments that grew out of that movement.
